Interesting short video from CBS concerning James Andrews, MD.  Performed surgery on practically half the Saint's Super Bowl starting team. Incredible the number of important athletes that he's worked on - and the pressure that he has to repair and do no further harm.

I know i'm gonna get flak for this from non-wrestling fans, but the man single-handedly saved Triple H's career after he tore his pectoral muscle clean off the bone. (Which was not par of a storyline, but a real injury.)

The man's great at his job.

Impressive guy.

Fwiw, as I understand, he supervises now and rarely performs the surgery himself anymore.





It is a new day in TAMPA BAY!    GO BUCS!!

That's normal procedure. Usually they teach someone to take over for them once they make their millions.

That dude definitely knows what he is doing.

Not a wrestling fan anymore, but didnt he do the same thing for Trip years ago after tearing his knee (I think) up real bad in the Hell in a Cell match with Mick Foley to "force" him to retire?

Edit: Nvm, it was his quad in a tag team match (Stone Cold was his partner) against Chris Jericho and Benoit. Tore his quad right off the bone.....That Hell in a Cell match against Cactus Jack was awesome way back when.

He's operated on half of the wrestlers and about 20% of the baseball and football players.  Dunno about the most important man in sports, but he's up there.
