Congrats to Dr. Jobe

Dr. Frank Jobe, the world famous orthopedist and longtime Dodgers team physician who invented the now commonly performed Tommy John elbow reconstruction surgery, has been promoted to special advisor to Dodgers chairman Frank McCourt. What that means isn’t entirely clear, but it does mean the good doctor is being rewarded for his unprecendented and unmatched contributions to the field of sports medicine. “That (new role) hasn’t been completely defined yet,” Jobe said. “When Mr. McCourt comes to camp, we’re going to discuss the details of it.” Jobe said he doesn’t plan to actively practice medicine in the future, but he will continue to see patients on a consultant basis and make recommendations.
