Pediatric Concussion Program
The Pediatric Concussion Program at Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children's Hospital is a multidisciplinary clinic dedicated solely to the care of pediatric patients who have suffered a mild traumatic brain injury.The program, which includes a clinic dedicated to the assessment and care of young athletes who have suffered sports concussions, offers improved patient care by ensuring access to the variety of subspecialty programs neurotrauma patients require for evaluation, diagnosis, management and treatment.
The program’s goal is for children and their families to get one-stop care, where standardized treatment protocols are researched, evaluated, and consistently improved as new data comes available. Concussions are indeed brain injuries! And even when mild, can result in permanent damage.
We have designed a program and multidisciplinary clinic located in convenient locations across the Valley to assess and care for these children. This allows for a better experience for both the family and patient. A collaboration of pediatric Neurosurgery, Neurology, Sports Medicine, Neuropsychology, Neuroimaging, Injury Prevention, and Rehabilitative Services provides improved communication, clinical care, research, education, and most importantly, patient- and family- centered care.
