Tri-County Orthopedics' Sports Medicine Experts Weigh In on Alabama's Tagovailoa
Our sports medicine doctors weigh in on the weekend's most significant injury in college football. One of today's biggest players, Tua Tagovailoa of Alabama, was carted off the field after suffering a significant hip injury in Saturday's game against Mississippi State. One of Tri-County Orthopedics' sports medicine surgeons, Dr. Stephen Hunt, shares his thoughts on Tagovailoa's injury and recovery: "Hopefully Tua Tagovailoa’s posterior wall fracture is small. Many hip dislocations are associated with cartilage damage, labral tears, and small bony injuries. Some of them may be amenable to arthroscopic surgery to restore stability and repair bone and cartilage damage." Knowing what a great player Tagovailoa is, Tri-County Orthopedics and all our sports medicine providers wish him a very speedy treatment and recovery.
