AusACPDM Listening and Sharing session: 31st January 2024

Growth in children with cerebral palsy: Friend or foe

Join us in our free listening and sharing session.

January 31st 2024, 4pm AEDST

This session will be of interest to clinicians, researchers, students  and people with lived experience.

Topic information: Musculoskeletal problems (MSP) in children with CP tend to progress overtime. The impact of growth on muscle contracture, the development and progression of bony deformity and joint instability may be a result of growth. In this talk Dr Abhay Khot will present MSP that develop with growth. He will discuss how considering growth can impact on timing and type of orthopaedic surgery and how growth plate surgery may improve some MSP.

We hope this session evokes some lively discussion!

Speaker: Dr Abhay Khot, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

The session will be facilitated by: Pam Thomason
