|Resources for Medical Professionals
In our co-management programs, Connecticut Children’s medical experts team up with pediatric primary care providers to provide comprehensive patient care that is convenient for families. Co-Management is most effective in treating conditions such as concussions that can be observed in a high volume among children in the region, or conditions which require acute expertise but can be managed by the primary care provider in an outpatient setting.
Post-operative protocols are available for ankle, elbow, hip, knee, lower leg and shoulder procedures. Preoperative, rehabilitation, and other non-operative guidelines also available.
