If you want a statistical measure of Meyers' surgical genius, you could start with the success Roy Oswalt and Cliff Lee had in the years after their surgeries. Lee made four all-star games and won a Cy Young Award. Oswalt won 163 games, became one of the most durable pitchers in baseball, and, post-surgery, earned more than $96 million. "Dr. Meyers saved my career," Oswalt says plainly.

Over the years, Meyers has saved the careers of baseball, basketball, football, hockey, and tennis stars and helped thousands of weekend athletes — including me. Somewhat by accident, he invented a surgery to repair an injury that, in previous generations, forced athletes to retire; an injury that didn't even have a name, because it didn't show up on standard MRIs.
