The importance of promptly identifying and adequately caring for concussions has received increasing attention in recent years, especially among athletes. At NewYork-Presbyterian Queens, our expert physicians in sports concussion screening and management use an individualized approach to support the recovery of athletes who have sustained a concussion. Our goal is to return each athlete back to his or her sport safely, armed with a newfound education and understanding of concussions.
We use the ImPACT computerized evaluation system to assess concussions and to gauge a person's recovery and readiness to return to activities. Our team includes physicians who are credentialed to use this important tool.
