John J. Leddy, MD, partnered with his UB colleague Barry Willer to develop an exercise-based test that helps doctors understand when it’s safe for an athlete to return to play following a concussion. Patients treated at Leddy’s concussion management clinic include players from the National Football League (NFL) and National Hockey League (NHL). A clinical associate professor of orthopaedics in UB’s School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Leddy is principal investigator of a grant from NFL Charities that focuses on developing a scientific assessment to determine when athletes can return to the field.
