MLB.com has published an article about Dr. Anthony Romeo’s friendship with Boston Red Sox pitcher Jake Peavy. Dr. Anthony Romeo executed a one-of-a-kind surgery on Peavy to reattach Peavy’s latissimus dorsi muscle a month into the 2010 season. Since the surgery, Dr. Anthony Romeo and Peavy have maintained a friendship.
Peavy says in the article, “I owe a lot to Dr. Anthony Romeo, and we’ve developed a great friendship,” Peavy said. “He came down to my place this winter. Dr. Anthony Romeo is a tremendous, tremendous person. I think we all know how good of a doctor he is, but he’s a great person.”
