Shohei Ohtani's incredible season officially comes to an end after the Angels announced that he had a "procedure to his elbow." Was the surgery to his right elbow really just a second Tommy John? Dr. Alan Beyer, board-certified surgeon at 🤍OrthopedicHospital, takes a closer look at the procedure and Shohei's recovery. Like, share, and subscribe to 🤍ESPNLA 👍
I think Shohei will stay with the Angles. There should be a bet on which team Shohei will sign up with.
To me it looks like a brand new "John Tommy" surgery, not the old version Tommy John.... He will be better than before and become the first "Three-way Player"
I totally agree with him!
That's 3 orthopedic surgeons so far that have said it was a TJ! lol Dr El Attrache said "repair" and "reinforce" which sounds exactly like a "internal brace procedure". TJ is a "reconstruction" NOT repair! The "brace" was to "reinforce" the "healthy ligament IN PLACE" already! All these docs are perplexed by the phrase "adding viable TISSUE" thus concluded it must be a new ligament added...therefore TJ. WRONG IMO!!!
Very informative 👍
