Dr. Keith Meister set to perform elbow surgery on Washington Nationals player


Keith Meister, MD, is set to perform elbow surgery on Washington Nationals pitcher Cade Cavalli on March 22.

Mr. Cavalli suffered a grade 3 sprain of his right ulnar collateral ligament during a spring training game, according to a report from the team. 

Dr. Meister will perform Tommy John surgery, a reconstructive elbow surgery that repairs a partial or complete tear of ligament. 

The surgery has a recovery time of 12 months, leading Mr. Cavalli to miss the entire 2023 Major League Baseball season, the report said.

Dr. Meister is the director of sports medicine at Arlington-based Texas Metroplex Institute for Sports Medicine and is the head team physician for the Texas Rangers, another MLB team.
