Concussion Clinic at Barrow
The 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 traumatic brain injury.
A collaboration of Neurosurgery, Neurology, Sports Medicine, Neuropsychology, Neuroimaging, Injury Prevention, and Rehabilitative Services, the program provides improved communication, clinical care, research, education, and most importantly, patient- and family- centered care.
The program, which includes a clinic dedicated to the 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. This model ensures a patient-focused approach to the care and well being of children and also includes a dedicated focus on family-support needs.
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.
