Mayo Clinic Study Explores Severity, Expense of Motocross Injuries

By Kelley Luckstein

Mayo Clinic researchers today presented findings about significant instances of hospitalization and surgery following motocross injuries to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons' 2010 Annual Meeting.  The presentation is based on a December 2009 article entitled "Motocross Morbidity: Economic Cost and Injury Distribution in Children," published in the December 2009 Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics


When reviewing these cases, we saw very high levels of hospitalization and surgery, and we believe this is just the tip of the iceberg when looking at motocross-related injuries," says Amy McIntosh, M.D., Mayo Clinic Department of Orthopedic Surgery.,  3/10/2010
