    Dr. Kremchek treats professional athletes from a variety of sports and all levels of competition. He has performed Tommy John Surgery (ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction) on dozens of MLB pitchers, as well as many minor league and college ballplayers. Because of the drastic increase in the number of cases requiring Tommy John surgery, Dr. Kremchek has become one of the most outspoken voices in Southwestern Ohio regarding pitch counts in youth baseball.
