John J. Leddy, MD, clinical professor of orthopaedics and medical director of UB’s Concussion Management Clinic, was quoted in news outlets commented on a study finding increased levels of depression and post-traumatic stress disorder with mild traumatic brain injury, noting: “All in all, I think it's a good study for helping to predict who is at risk for depression and PTSD after a traumatic brain injury sustained in a car accident or from an assault," he said, "but the results cannot be generalized to athletes with a sport concussion."
