Legendary pitcher Trevor Hoffman’s 2007 surgery on his throwing elbow helped him return stronger and log 77 more saves in the next few seasons. Pros and their doctors face issues the average patient wouldn’t necessarily have to consider. Hoffman credits his team at Scripps for giving him the opportunity to continue pitching into his 40s. While serious sports injuries can strike at any time, talented surgeons and innovative new techniques can help both elite athletes and weekend warriors get back on track sooner than ever.
