Rodriguez’s surgery: What happens before and after

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jan 09, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

When Dr. Bryan Kelly explained Alex Rodriguez’s hip injury yesterday, the explanation took more than a half hour and could have gone much longer. I didn’t come close to transcribing everything the doctor said, and I still have a file of well over 3,000 words. It’s a lot to take in, and that’s simply scratching the surface.

Last night, I tried to explain the basics of the injury itself — what happened and what it means — but that left out a lot of what Dr. Kelly had to say. Here are two key points that he seemed to focus on: The pre-hab and the rehab.

What’s happening before the surgery
Obviously there’s a reason Rodriguez hasn’t had the surgery yet. Most of Dr. Kelly’s explanation for the wait matched everything we’ve heard before — need to strengthen the area, want to get the inflammation out, by strengthening now the rehab process will be quicker — but Dr. Kelly also brought up something I hadn’t considered.

The right hip seems fine, and the doctors want to keep it that way.

“Alex’s case is complicated by the fact he has a (right) hip that’s already undergone surgery which has been successful,” Dr. Kelly said. “During the post-operative period of time, immediately post-operatively, he’s going to have to really rely on his right hip because there’s a period of protected weight bearing that can last anywhere from 10 days to four weeks depending on how strong the muscle is going into it. Want to minimize the amount of time he has to spend relying on his right hip, because the last thing we want to do is compromise the thus far successfully repaired right hip because we prematurely operated on the left side. He’s got a lot of complicating factors that make timing an issue.”

What’s going to happen after the surgery
Dr. Kelly outlined several reasons this surgery is different from many others — most of them because of the unique nature of the hip muscle itself — but among those differences is this one: In theory, Dr. Kelly is actually going to make Rodriguez’s hip able to do things it couldn’t do originally. By reshaping the hip bone, doctors will actually add range of motion that didn’t exist when the bone was misshapen.

“When we improve that motion arc, we help the joint in terms of providing clearance, but there’s an accommodation phase that has to occur for the muscles to allow them to become reeducated to this new motion arc,” Dr. Kelly said. “Fortunately, muscles have a degree of compliance that allows them to stretch and be flexible, and it happens over time. … We’re literally trying to increase range of motion, so this requires a tremendous amount of muscle reeducation post-operative, that is very different from traditional rehab, and in that respect, the rehab component of this is really critical.”

Dr. Kelly outlined a rehab schedule that includes roughly six weeks of healing, followed by an “early strengthening phase.” It’s not until three months after surgery that Rodriguez can begin his true strengthening phase, and it’s only after he builds strength that he can begin to build endurance. After he builds endurance, Rodriguez can begin what Dr. Kelly calls, “the coordination phase… (which is) the functional return to the sport.”

    Would really like to understand the reshaping process – I would have assumed that reshaping would do too much damage to cartilage to allow him to play afterwards. I wonder why they didn’t do any reshaping to his other hip (presumably because that was a smaller and less invasive surgery).

    The story on AROD is pretty simple. He can reasonably be expected back this year if he doesn’t have significant cartilage damage which the doctor said would be irreparable. The doctor is hopeful he does not but will not know until he is opened up. If he has the significant cartilage damage, AROD may well be permanently unable to return or only return on a limited basis.

    We won’t know until after surgery.

    What about the steroid users we don’t know about? That’s the problem. Even if you want to ban users, players are going to get in who used; it’s unavoidable. So any attempt to draw a bright line would be difficult.

    “We can’t make it perfect so screw it, just totally ignore the issue” is not a good plan.

    We shouldn’t not vote for Bonds because Biggio could have used and may get in? I’m supposed to feel sorry for Bonds if that happens?

    He described it a little bit. Basically he has a tool with a spinning burr that physcially reshapes the bone into a predetermined shape. It does seem like that would have to damage the cartilage, but apparently it doesn’t. I think I’d have to see it to fully understand it.

  14. austinmac January 9th, 2013 at 11:48 am

    Blake,

    It is time to admit it. You like Jello.

    I’m not sure any of the Nats catchers will be available since Ramos had ACL surgery in July and is an unknown.

    Rod or Pineda, wake me up when they are back. Don’t really care about HOF or any other accolades for that matter, just win. Morse is too good too be a platoon hitter, he definitely would help this year but so were many others yanks passed on. best case scenario, Cashman stealing one of rod’s honey and gets a beat down from rod, both are out of baseball, but unlikely to happen.

  19. blake January 9th, 2013 at 11:51 am

    But have you ever ordered Jello at the Waffle House?

    “For some of you guys that live and die with the “numbers”, to Now try and hide behind Not having your own words taken “literally”, = a white flag. I ACCEPT”

    so Donnybrook can understand. Mike Morse is a bad defender who could probably play RF on occasion in YS without hard. Kurt Suzuki is a bad catcher overall who is still better than what the Yankees currently have.

  42. bruceb January 9th, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    Add Grady Sizemore to the list of players the Yankees “check in” on every year but never sign. Used to be Mark DeRosa and David DeJesus.

    My ten cents’ worth on the A-Rod situation: I see a likely scenario of the Yanks chasing the Rays and Jays for most of the year and everyone pinning their hopes on A-Rod’s return making the difference. If that’s the case, then I think we’re going to be disappointed. I’d say it’s no better than even money that he plays in 2013. Even if the operation and rehab goes as planned, how many games is he going to need to play in the Minors before he’s ready return to the big stage?

  43. Rich in NJ January 9th, 2013 at 12:37 pm

    If the Yankees surprise to the upside this season, I think it will more likely be because their starting pitcher overperforms, and Youkilis, Ichiro, and Tex perform better than they have in recent years, rather than anything A-Rod does.

  44. DONNYBROOK January 9th, 2013 at 12:48 pm

    I still say A-Rod tore that hip up after his ER Junket. Dr Hackenbush says A-Rod had trouble even doing a Simple leg lift on his intial visit, yet this was Not noted in the ER? The man had to get himself up onna table for the MRI, which involves the lifting of the legs. Gimme a break. Do NOT take me literally Blake.

  46. blake January 9th, 2013 at 1:17 pm

    waiting for Arod’s return for a boost is becoming an annual event.

  47. Chip January 9th, 2013 at 1:28 pm

    The problem that you face with Alex if you’re Cashman is that whether he performs or not, he’s coming back and so you have to account for him. By account for him I mean that starting in mid July you’re going to have Alex and Youk on the roster occupying your DH and 3b spots. That knowledge may be what keeps the Yankees from trading for a Mike Morse and instead pursuing a bench guy (Hairston) and fabricating a DH solution for the first couple of months with guys who can fit on your bench or be part of a LH/RH platoon at DH if Alex’s isn’t terribly effective in his return (Kelly Johnson).

  48. blake January 9th, 2013 at 1:31 pm

    that would be terrible decision making as Alex may not even play this year…..if he does come back and they have too many guys then they can trade Youkallis or Morse.

  49. The Return of Stoneburner January 9th, 2013 at 1:33 pm

    ___________________

    Morse would have to be in the lineup everyday, either in LF, RF or DH. I believe if they get Morse, they should make their best effort to trade Granderson, move Gardner to CF, Morse to LF, and use Grandy to get the prospects back we lose in the Morse trade.

  52. Rich in NJ January 9th, 2013 at 1:38 pm

    They are reportedly in the mix for Morse, Chip, so I don’t think the A-Rod issue is holding them back in that regard.

    I think the sole issue is what would Morse cost.

  53. blake January 9th, 2013 at 1:39 pm

    Morse in LF at YS wouldn’t be pretty on an every day basis……unless they really get a nice return for Grandy I think that strategy would be counterproductive.

    You can’t trade Granderson for prospects. The Yankees need to win. They have prospects who aren’t ready, so they need the guys they have to play until they are. The only way you can trade Granderson is if you get a comparable bat back or sign a comparable bat in FA first. Morse plugs the DH/RH-OF hole, not replaces Granderson’s production.

    Next year is going to be the tricky one.

    Not necessarily. Maybe Morse will hit above .225 and not strike out 200 times. Plus Gardner can move to CF. Also, maybe Musteiler or Zoilo will get a chance this year, should someone get hurt.

    Trading Granderson – you have to factor:

    The prospects/players you get back vs. Granderson’s 40+ HRs and production + the supplemental pick in a deeper 2014 draft + the increase of draft pool money in a deeper 2014 draft

    ____

    Morse CAN replace Granderson’s production and the DH should just be a rotation of everyone who needs time off like Youk, Jeter etc. Also frees up an extra spot in the 25 man not to have a permanent DH. Allows Nunez to get on the team.

    Again, they DONT need 250 homeruns to win.
    They need guys that can advance runners, hit singles and doubles and not K 200 times.

    An umpire got in so there is that. Haters will be hating that.

    I did Not say it was offensive to me. It’s just that when you slander someone, your point gets muddled. It’s a valid point. In fact, my chief reservation with Huckabee is whether his religous background would prevent him from pulling a Truman and dropping a Bomb or 2.

    Any writer who was employed and covering baseball during the steroid era – whatever time frame that may be – should lose their vote – because they were either intentionally, recklessly, or negilgently sleeping on this story – they either turned the other way intentionally OR were so incompetent that could not notice what was going on – they cannot now retroactively wash their hands and then also lay judgment as the so-called protectors of the HOF – - – -

    No excuse for failing to trade for Morse – – – -

    Well there are some that are acceptable:

    Nationals finding an offer they like better being the top one.

    As I said yesterday – try to expand the deal; get Suzuki included too – then to make it financially work deal Granderson and his $15M for Murphy and a prospect.

    I understand – but on this one – I am taking an extreme irrational stance – he makes too much sense – I want to see what the other teams are offering – and what the Yanks are offering and what the Nats really want from the Yanks – - – -

    ‘You can’t trade Granderson for prospects. The Yankees need to win.”

    They need to win in the futue as well as the present, so if they get enough back, it’s a no brainer to move him.

    I can imagine a lot of words that would upset someone, but “idiot” wouldn’t be on the list.

    It is not slander to call someone an idiot.

    As for the Hall…. baseball desperately needs the Hall to take a stand on the steroid issue and give voters specific guidance. Or they could simply remove the integrity….etc clause that has never been used before

    Amen. As it stands now Yankee baseball, as we know it, ends at the end of this year.
