Jon Koman is a former assistant team physician for the Baltimore Orioles and has also co-authored  research papers for several prestigious medical journals such as Journal of Bones.

Jon joined Ed and Steve this morning to talk about Manny Machado’s knee surgery, which was reportedly successful.

Steve asks: What is time frame for Manny getting back?

Jon: He injured a ligament that attaches the knee cap, he dislocated his knee cap a second time and could have more problems. Hopefully by 4-6 months.

Ed: Is this an effective surgery to come back from?

Jon: Recovery rates are really high, I don’t think in the future this will be a problem, as long as he rehabs and strengthens muscles in knee.

Steve: Do they have to do anything next season were they when he gets back is he will not be 100 percent?

Jon: I would think he will be 100 percent when he gets back, as long as he gets his motion and strength back. This is out side the joint and I think he should do well with this.
