Tommy John Surgery, or UCL Reconstruction, is a surgical procedure used to repair torn ligaments in the elbow. A torn or damaged ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) commonly affects pitchers, which explains why this procedure was named after Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Tommy John. We may recommend Tommy John Surgery to patients who experience pain, instability, numbness and loss of motion after repetitive ligament stress. Baseball players as well as tennis players, football players, wrestlers and javelin throwers are all at risk for this type of elbow injury.

What To Expect During UCL Reconstruction

Tommy John Surgery, performed by an experienced and skilled surgeon, has saved the careers of many elite baseball players and other professional athletes. You can trust that our physicians are qualified to perform this specialized procedure successfully. During UCL Reconstruction, the tendon in the forearm is used to recreate the damaged ligament and restore stability to the joint. We make it a priority to carefully explain the procedure to each patient and set realistic recovery expectations. Following the suggested postoperative instructions and rehabilitation exercises can ensure your elbow is restored as quickly as possible.

Gratefulness

During the month of November, it’s a good time to reflect upon all that we’re grateful for. At Ortho Sport & Spine, we have a long list of all that we’re thankful for.

Are Your Ready For Your Cooler Workouts

November ushers in a season marked by gratefulness and cooler temperatures. At Ortho Sport & Spine, we’re grateful for the cooler temperatures. Georgia summers can actually be somewhat prohibitive for being active outside. The high temperatures and humidity often make playing, exercising and journeying outside unfavorable.
