‘Shoulder injury’ Lee Jeong-hoo, possibility of surgery…"Structural damage found" – Korean Economy VRESP


Lee Jeong-hoo (25, San Francisco Giants), who is playing on the American stage, was found to be seriously injured.

On the 15th (Korean time), the Major League Baseball (MLB) San Francisco team said, “Structural damage was found in Lee Jung-hoo’s shoulder through a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test,” and added, “Lee Jung-hoo will move to Los Angeles on the 17th and play Neal Ella. “We plan to seek Dr. Trache’s opinion,” he said.

The San Francisco team did not explain the extent of Lee Jung-hoo’s injury in detail, but as they mentioned ‘structural damage’, it appears that ligament or muscle damage was discovered.

In the worst case, surgery is possible.

On the 13th, Lee Jung-hoo collided with the fence and fell while on defense in the first inning of the game against the Cincinnati Reds, and was diagnosed with a dislocation, where his arm bone came out of the shoulder joint.

He underwent an MRI the next day and listened to the explanation of the team’s doctor, orthopedic specialist Dr. Kenneth Akatsuki.

On the same day, San Francisco placed Jeong-hoo Lee on the 10-day injured list (IL). Additionally, San Francisco coach Bob Melvin said, “I don’t think surgery will be necessary.”

However, Lee Jeong-hoo discovered structural damage during the second examination and decided to see Dr. Elatrace.

Dr. Elatrace is a world-class sports surgery specialist, and is famous among domestic baseball fans as the person who performed shoulder and elbow surgery on Ryu Hyun-jin (currently Hanwha Eagles).

Not only MLB, but many sports stars around the world entrust their surgeries to Dr. Elatrace.

Last year, MLB superstar Shohei Ohtani (Los Angeles Dodgers) underwent elbow surgery by Dr. Elatrace.

Whether or not Lee Jeong-hoo will undergo surgery may be decided on the 17th or 18th. If Lee Jeong-hoo goes to the operating table, there is a possibility that he will be out for the season.

Lee Jeong-hoo debuted in the big league this season and recorded a batting average of 0.262, 2 home runs, 8 RBIs, and 2 stolen bases in 37 games.
