"Deciding when surgery is appropriate in a school-aged patient must be coupled with an understanding of the risks of delaying surgery. However, if reconstruction of the student's injury will not be negatively affected by delaying surgery, the academic benefits of delaying the surgery may be significant enough," said Ahmad.
