Accreditation Check:

Injury rates in sports among pediatric athletes continue to rise year by year. National attention has even been drawn to our young athletes recently as overuse and traumatic injuries are becoming much more common. Many of these injuries with younger athletes present much differently than injuries with adults and require special attention from a trained medical provider to assist in their injury management. This two-part course, presented by Dr. David Piskulic, will discuss knee injuries associated with pediatric and young adult athletes. Part One of this course series will include a review of pediatric anatomy, overuse and traumatic injuries, and common surgical interventions involved with pediatric treatment and management.
