“The National Health Interview Survey estimates that more than 2 million sports related injuries occur in the United States in a given year among adults ages 25 and older,” explained Frank Cordasco, M.D., orthopedic surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York and co-Director of Current Concepts in Sports Medicine. “Roughly the same number of athletes between the ages of 5 and 14 suffer from sports related injuries. As the field of sports medicine continues to grow in popularity and importance, the medical community needs the most up-to-date information on how to treat patients.”
“This conference serves as an opportunity for those in the world of sports medicine to learn state-of-the-art techniques and better meet the needs of every sports medicine patient from the foremost practitioners in the nation,” said John T. Cavanaugh, PT, Med, ATC, Clinical Supervisor of Hospital for Special Surgery’s Sports Rehabilitation and Performance Center and co-Activity Director of Current Concepts in Sports Medicine.
