BUFFALO, N.Y. – John Leddy, MD, medical director of the University at Buffalo Concussion Management Clinic and a physician with UBMD Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, will appear on CBS This Morning on Thursday, Jan. 7, for a segment on a new way to treat concussions in athletes ages 12 to 18.

Leddy is testing this new treatment, which looks to have those who have been concussed participate in some activity to promote recovery.

CBS This Morning came to campus a few weeks ago to tape the segment. Leddy’s clinical trial has received prominent local news coverage as well.
