Avoid Elbow Surgery with Regenexx

Tommy John Surgery (TJS) is a colloquial name for a surgery to reconstruct the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL), the ligament that holds the elbow together and stabilizes it. Injuries to the UCL are especially common in baseball among pitchers due to the incredible physical strain caused to the arm by pitching. The common treatment for pitchers suffering from tears in their UCL has been the Tommy John Surgery, a procedure that involves drilling holes in the ulna and the humerus and attaching a graft tendon taken from elsewhere in the body. Pitchers can typically begin throwing again after 18 weeks and will miss a full professional season in recovery. A percentage never return to play while some careers are cut short. Regenexx has helped a number of high-level athletes with UCL tears avoid surgery and get back on the field faster.

During this outpatient procedure, our expert physicians use precise image guidance to inject custom concentrations of your body's natural healing mechanisms into the exact areas of damage in your elbow to repair damaged tissues and to improve function and mobility. Best of all, your downtime will be a fraction of surgery, with little to no need for opioid pain medications or time off of work. Call our patient care coordinators today to get started on your path to recovery.
