Accordingly, Lee Jeong-hoo decided to undergo a thorough examination by Dr. Elatrace in Los Angeles on the 17th, Korean time.

Elatrace is a world-renowned sports doctor who recently performed Ohtani’s elbow surgery as well as Ryu Hyun-jin’s shoulder and elbow surgery.

Typically, non-surgical recovery takes about 6 to 7 weeks, but surgical recovery takes about 4 to 6 months.

San Francisco outfielder Michael Conforto, who underwent two shoulder surgeries alternately on the left and right, said, “The left shoulder injury is good news for Lee Jeong-hoo,” and added, “The surgical technology is much better than 10 years ago, and it will not be a problem at all in his future career.” expressed his opinion.
