Tommy John Surgery

Treats Ulnar Collateral Ligament (UCL) Injuries of the Elbow

Call for an Appointment

Any sport that involves a throwing motion can lead to a tear in the ulnar collateral ligament -- a band of tough, flexible tissue that stabilizes the elbow joint. Besides baseball, that can include football, racquet sports, javelin, and volleyball. Symptoms of a torn or damaged UCL include pain on the inside of your elbow. You may also notice that your throw has less power. Tommy John surgery can treat this painful injury and eventually return you to the sport you love.
