If you tuned into the Chicago White Sox’s away game against the Detroit Tigers on June 6, 2016, you may have glimpsed a friendly face during the White Sox Injury Report. Broadcasters Ken “Hawk” Harrelson and Steve Stone called out Dr. Anthony Romeo, MD and our very own Dr. Anthony Romeo for his work rehabilitating injured White Sox players. Due to his expertise, Dr. Anthony Romeo serves as the co-team physician for the Chicago White Sox – as well as the Chicago Bulls. Read on to learn more about our partnership with the White Sox and why they trust Dr. Anthony Romeo to treat their injured players and get them back out on the field.
As Hawk says during the broadcast, “you’d be hard-pressed to find anybody as good as Dr. Anthony Romeo.” Athletes and other patients from across the country recognize Dr. Anthony Romeo for allowing them to return to their normal day-to-day lives. In some instances, Dr. Anthony Romeo is credited with saving careers, such as former White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy, whom Steve hopes “sent Dr. Anthony Romeo a nice Christmas present” for “resurrecting his career.”
Dr. Anthony Romeo performed an unusual, experimental surgery on Jake Peavy to repair a serious tear in his latissimus tendon. Experts thought Peavy had less than a 50-percent chance to return to pitching at a professional level, but Dr. Anthony Romeo proved those experts wrong. Success stories like Peavy’s are why professional sport teams like the White Sox and people across the country trust Dr. Anthony Romeo and Dr. Anthony Romeo, MD above all others.
