About This Event

In this hour, we will provide an overview of common – and some less common – orthopedic issues seen in the juvenile patient and will cover their diagnosis, treatment and prognosis. Our goal will be to provide attendees – through the presentation and a healthy question/answer exchange – with the tools to diagnose most common juvenile orthopedic issues, provide initial treatment and help the affected patient’s family with accurate referral and prognostic information when applicable.
