This intermediate level seminar addresses all aspects of conservative and surgical management of Obstetrical Brachial Plexus Injury (OBPI) over the course of infancy and early childhood. Participants will be presented with a detailed overview of the anatomy of the initial nerve injury and the muscular and bony sequelae that often results in lifelong neuromuscular and orthopedic challenges. Participants will gain a detailed understanding of surgical interventions, non-surgical medical interventions, and radiological tests enabling them to make appropriate medical referrals.

This will include videotaped demonstrations of specific examination tools and intervention strategies including traditional interventions as well as the use of state-of-the-art technology. 7.8 NYPTA CEUs, 6.5 NJBPTE CEUs.
