SDT Superbowl Highlight Purdy and UCL
by Dr. Grant Garcia | 1 year ago
UCL repair with internal brace got more press recently when Brock Purdy chose this surgery over full tommy john reconstruction of his elbow. This surgery is becoming more mainstream with similar biomechanical strength to full reconstruction. Itís an excellent option for throwers and non-throwers due to this faster recovery and similar success rates in those with the right injury pattern. @Will Sanchez and I recently discussed this in our new podcast @SportsDocTalkPodcast. This short segment below reviews this injury and what surgical options are available for our high-level athletes. To listen to the whole podcast see link below and subscribe!
