UCL Injury Relief
Overuse of your elbow can occur especially in overhand throwing sports. When extreme stress is placed on the elbow it can result in an Ulnar Collateral Ligament (UCL) Injury.
The surgeons at Onward Orthopedics are UCL injury experts.
How is a UCL Injury Treated?
If rest does not help resolve the pain, it’s time to consider surgical treatment for your UCL Injury. Onward Orthopedic Surgeons are highly skilled in reconstructing your Ulnar Collateral Ligament through Tommy John Surgery.
Named after the former major league pitcher who had the first successful surgery in 1974, Tommy John Surgery is a procedure in which the surgeon reconstructs your UCL. Using a minimally invasive approach, the surgeon replaces the torn ligament with a tissue graft. Your new ligament will grow on this graft helping restore a complete range of motion to your elbow.
