Dr. Jeffrey Dugas to operate on Boston Red Sox pitcher


Jeffrey Dugas, MD, is set to perform a shoulder operation on Lucas Giolito, a pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, in Birmingham, Ala.

The extent of the injury to Mr. Giolito's ulnar collateral ligament is not fully known, so the operation could either require a brace procedure or full Tommy John surgery, according to a March 11 news release from mlb.com. 

Mr. Giolito experienced discomfort in his right elbow following a game on March 1. 

Dr. Dugas is an orthopedic sports medicine surgeon at the Andrews Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center in Birmingham. He specializes in shoulder, knee and elbow treatments and serves as the team physician for Troy (Ala.) University and numerous high schools.
