Flew down yesterday. I thought Dr Guy was going to do it? I don't know were in Florida'
Believe it was in Birmingham
If that's the case Dr James Andrews would be the one doing it.
Follow me on Twitter, @chrisinstpete
that is what I understood...top dog in the country.
Andrews did it last time as well.
Isn't he the Orthopedic Surgeon who handles surgical cases for the NFL?
If this is the case we can all rest assured that Marcus is receiving the absolute best of care.
he does all the million dollar knees lol
SI article on him from 2010
He will be at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa on Friday afternoon, anxiously walking the sidelines, his penetrating green eyes scanning the field for injuries. He is�the only man in the state of Alabama who can say he plays for both the Auburn Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide. When someone from either team is slow to rise after the whistle blows, the silver-haired 68-year-old who nearly died of a heart attack five years ago will charge forward, and suddenly the most famous sports doctor in America will be on center stage. Look closely into the crowd and, as the man leans down to tend to the fallen athlete, fingers will point and cameras will flash, because in his home state Dr. James Andrews is about as popular -- and well known -- as the two head coaches that will be pacing opposite sidelines.
Dr. James Andrews has his office in Gulf Breeze, FL now. So I guess that is where Marcus is
James Andrews was in the room last time when dr guy "did the surgery."
Guy studied under Andrews.
surgery was in Birmingham and it is my understanding it wa successville.
Thats great to know! Thanks for sharing...
Jimmy Andrews will very rarely actually do the surgeries anymore. But he is involved in many cases. Dr. Guy did both of the surgeries for Marcus, but Jimmy was involved in both cases.
The same applies at Jimmy's teaching hospital/clinic in Birmingham. He is involved in a lot of the high profile athletes' cases (College, NFL, MLB) but he has another surgeon to do some of the surgery.
Dr. Guy did his Orthopaedic Fellowship with Jimmy and trained under him.
This is a very informative thread. Thanks for all the posters.
James Andrews has a full sports complex in the Pensacola area.
Was it ever confirmed exactly which ligaments he damaged?
Nope at not sure we should or will ever know, man's health is his business.
