Nate Rodriguez – Tommy John Surgery

The injury to my UCL was an unexplainable event that I never imagined would happen to me. I had never had elbow issues, however with sports there are always risks. Once I got injured and found out that I needed the surgery, I met with several surgeons and none of them made me feel more comfortable than Dr. Ahmad. He was excellent from start to finish.

I had always been a three sport athlete with no down time so I became super nervous for the surgery and the subsequent recovery period. Dr. Ahmad did a fantastic job of calming me down and always making it a positive environment for a tough situation. At our post-surgery meetings, Dr. Ahmad was always genuinely happy to see me and my progress and made me feel super confident in the work I was doing. Now I’m back to playing the sport I love all thanks to Dr. Ahmad and his team. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience/surgery.

1 year later and I’m feeling fantastic. Dr. Ahmad and his team have really made this process as smooth as possible and I am grateful for everything they have done for me! My elbow feels fantastic and it feels amazing to play ball again!
