Surveillance to Salvage Seminar Materials

Pelvic x-ray

On October 2, 2015 the continuing education seminar, The Hip in Children with Cerebral Palsy – Surveillance to Salvage, will be presented by the faculty at Shriners Hospitals for Children—Northern California.

The seminar is for doctors, nurses and therapists to openly discuss and address ways to preserve hip function in children with cerebral palsy. Hip Dysplasia is a common problem in children with cerebral palsy, and optimal treatment involves an understanding of the pathoanatomy, pathophysiology and both the pharmacologic and surgical treatment options. Participants learned how they can be a part of a multi-disciplinary hip surveillance program for children with cerebral palsy. Survelliance to Salvage Brochure.
