When I served as president of the New Jersey Neurosurgical Society, I met a lot of people from around our great state. One question that I heard from many parents and coaches was, "After a concussion, when is it safe to let a student-athlete return to play?" It is an important question because hundreds of thousands of high school students in the USA suffer concussions annually. I have given this question careful consideration during my decades of neurosurgical practice. With the recent formation of a new professional football league, a public posting of my professional opinion is timely.
