Are you an athlete who participates in repetitive overhead movements like tennis or pitching? If so, you are at an elevated risk of tearing the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL), also called the medial collateral ligament (MCL).

Williams specializes in Tommy John surgery and the repair or reconstruction of the ULC and MCL in the elbow for patients in Manhattan and New York City, NY. Contact Dr. Williams’ team today!
