“What separates us from the animals, what separates us from the chaos, is our ability to mourn people we’ve never met.” - David Levithan

With the passing of our beloved Dr. Frank Jobe we have lost a dear friend and mentor, and the world has lost a true legend in the field of sports medicine and orthopaedic surgery. As co-founder of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic, he was as much admired for his compassion, humility and generosity as he was for pioneering medical breakthroughs and career-saving procedures that touched the lives of countless athletes, including the Tommy John surgery.

We will forever remember Dr. Jobe as a devoted family man, friend, and mentor to anyone who had the distinct privilege of meeting him. His legacy as a giant in the world of medicine is cemented and his values and vision will continue to live on through the physicians he trained and those physicians who will be trained at Kerlan-Jobe in the future.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Dr. Jobe’s family, friends and loved ones as we mourn the loss of this remarkable man.

Dr. Ralph Gambardella
President and Chairman, +Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic

A team physician typically deals with orthopaedic injuries, like torn ligaments or sprains.  But what are the other, often more serious threats to athletes, both amateur and professional?  And how does a team doctor prepare to encounter them and save an athlete's life? 

Dr. Luga Podesta discusses such topics as concussion, abdominal injuries, heat illness, cardiac arrest and potential causes of sudden death in athletes. 

Dr. Luga Podesta is a nationally recognized sports medicine physician specializing in the non-surgical treatment of orthopedic, musculoskeletal and sports related injuries to the shoulder, elbow, knee and spine.

Dr. Podesta is Medical Director at Podesta Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Institute in Thousand Oaks, CA and on the clinical faculty at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedic Clinic in Los Angeles, CA. 

Board Certified in both Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine, Podesta is a fellow of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and a Member of the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine. Dr. Podesta is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine at Western University of Health Sciences.

Dr. Podesta is currently a Team Physician for Los Angeles Angels Baseball team. Prior to joining the Angels, Podesta served sixteen seasons as a team physician for the LA Dodgers (1990-2006). He has served as Head Team Physician for the World Champion LA Xtreme (XFL) (2001), LA Avengers, Arena Football League (2002-2008), and Major League Lacrosse LA Riptide (2006-2008). Dr. Podesta continues to serve as Head Team Physician for Oxnard College, a consultant to the Major League Baseball Umpires, as a Sports Performance Consultant to Cirque Du Soleil-Iris, and training camp consultant to the New Orleans Saints and Dallas Cowboys.

He remains active academically, lecturing nationally and internationally, works as a manuscript reviewer and author for several medical journals and contributing writer to DRUM Magazine on health-related topics.

A native of Seaford, NY, Podesta earned a Bachelor’s of Science Degree from Wagner College in 1977, Doctor of Medicine degree from Autonomous University of Guadalajara (2004) and New York Medical College (2005). He completed his residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at St. Vincent’s Medical Center of NYC and Sports Medicine fellowships at Staten Island Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center in Staten Island, NY (1989) and at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedic Clinic (1990). He and wife Pam reside in Camarillo, California and have 3 children, Luga, Daniel and Alyssa.
