|24 HOUR ACCESS TO OUR CLINICAL TEAM|
Concussions require immediate care. Parents and athletes concerned about a possible concussion have immediate access to our clinical team and will be scheduled to see our Neurosurgeon within 24 hours (no referral from a family doctor or paediatrician required).
This service is not a replacement for acute cases that require the Emergency Room.
ONGOING CONCUSSION MANAGEMENT
In the event of a potential concussion the diagnosis is confirmed by comparing the post-injury measurements to the athlete's baseline levels. The resolution of the concussion is determined through serial testing and the return of an athlete's measurements to baseline levels. These objective tests ensure safer and faster return to play.
The ultimate decision on clearance to return safely to sport is made by our Neurosurgeon in consultation with our entire healthcare team.
