Sure, if this is something with 100 surgeries under their belt like Tommy John, follow the schedule

TJ Surgery has been done multiple times with success over a long period of time and there's now an accepted time frame and path to recovery that usually brings the pitcher back to at least 90% and in some cases gets them to 110% adding some velocity.

I don't think this is the case with microfracture surgery. There isn't a huge sample of success and in reality the names that have fallen off a cliff after it (C-Webb/Penny/Mashburn/T-Mac/Amare/etc.) kinda outweigh the ones who made it back (Kidd/Kenyon/Z-Bo). Even the ones who made it back really can't jump or run all that great anymore either.

I guess I'm just saying I woulda preferred the longer timeline when it's ankle microfracture surgery?
