Tommy John Surgery

Ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction, commonly known as "Tommy John surgery" (named for the professional baseball player who was the first pitcher to have this treatment) is a procedure to repair a tear of the medial collateral ligament (MCL) of the elbow. This ligament is also sometimes referred to as the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) and should not be confused with the MCL of the knee.
