In the injured athlete, several criteria must be considered before return to play. There are separate considerations for knee injuries, shoulder injuries, and general upper and lower extremity injuries, as well as concussion, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, mononucleosis, and spondylolysis. It is important that surgical indications, postoperative rehabilitation, and risk for reinjury are reviewed by the surgeon before the athlete is allowed to resume activity.
