When Can I Participate In Full Contact Sports After Skull Reshaping Surgery?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am 25 years old and I train a lot at different martial arts (kickboxing, wrestling, BJJ, MMA,…) and I even compete in BJJ. I am considering the procedure of a skull reshaping surgery and I would like to know if training and competing in martial arts after the surgery is a problem or not. Furthermore could you give me any recommendations for doctors in europe? Because I only found you here in the states.
Would appreciate an answer very much. Thanks in advance.
A: For my patients I recommend they wait three months after any skull reshaping procedure before returning to contact type sports or physical activities.
