Shoulders, Elbows, Knees, and Toes…& Everything in Between: The Orthopedic Management of Brain Injury Patients:

The orthopedic manifestations of brain injury are many and can affect all portions of the musculoskeletal system. While the brain injury may be static, many of the bony and muscular deformities that occur after brain injury are progressive. This presentation will focus on the non-operative and operative management of deformities of the arms, legs, and spine.
