Tommy John surgery with a docking technique
Ulnar Collateral Ligament tears are often caused by a traumatic fall or sudden event, as well as frequent overuse from sports activity or demanding loads. Ulnar Collateral Ligament Reconstruction is performed upon rupture of the ulnar collateral ligament to stabilize and eliminate pain of the inner elbow. An autograft or allograft is used to replace damaged tissue. It is attached to the humerus medial epicondyle and the medial aspect of the ulna by creating bone tunnels and then utilizing sutures, interference screws, or anchors for secure fixation.1 CONMED offers a wide range of MTF Biologics allograft tendon choices for this procedure.
