Sports Shoulder and Elbow Injuries

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 Sports Shoulder and Elbow Injuries. Prior to his surgery, Tommy John had won 124 major league games. After surgery, he went on to win 164 more, had 3 all-star appearances, and 2 second place finishes for the Cy Young award. He retired in 1989 at age 46. For the last two years of his career, he was the oldest player in the major leagues. The surgery has become legendary and by 2014, fully one third of all major league pitchers had undergone the Tommy John procedure. A professional baseball pitcher may be the extreme, but anyone who uses their arms for sports, recreation, or work can put their elbows and shoulders at risk of damage. And these joints are incredibly complex. So when things go wrong, you need someone who really knows what they are doing to evaluate and treat it. On this CME webcast, we have just that person to tell us about sports-related elbow and shoulder injuries. Dr. Jonathan Barlow is an Assistant Professor of Orthopedics.
