At NYU Langone’s Concussion Center, we know that this form of traumatic brain injury may lead to long-term consequences if not treated properly. Concussions can happen anytime: when a teen takes a tough hit during a football game, an older adult falls and hits his or her head, or a driver gets whiplash during a car accident. If you’ve experienced a concussion, getting the right treatment can help you recover quickly and more completely.
U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” ranks NYU Langone among the top 10 in the country for neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, and rehabilitation.
To schedule a consultation or to learn more about our care, please call us at 855-698-2220 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our concussion experts also offer video visits for people who prefer to receive care in the privacy and comfort of their own home.

The care team at our Concussion Center guides you through every step of the treatment process. Your journey may start with our emergency room experts or during your initial meeting with our medical leaders in neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation (physiatry), or sports medicine, who are located throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Long Island.
We conduct a thorough examination to check your balance, coordination, and vision. We also perform cognitive testing to determine whether your memory, concentration, or language skills have been affected. Depending on the severity of the injury, our doctors may recommend imaging tests, such as an MRI or CT scan, the results of which are thoroughly reviewed by our neuroradiologists.
Following this medical assessment, we develop a treatment plan that may include connecting you with the specialists who can best help with your recovery. As part of Sports Health at NYU Langone, we are committed to delivering the most advanced medical treatment to our patients while also providing the support you need to achieve a full recovery.
To help coordinate your care, we have a clinical coordinator and program manager dedicated to answering your questions and guiding your clinical care, and also help you make appointments and access services in a timely manner. If you need to see an endocrinologist, headache specialist, neurosurgeon, orthopedist, otolaryngologist, pain management specialist, psychiatrist, or sleep medicine expert—or if you require psychological services from experts at NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation or neuropsychology services provded through the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center—we can facilitate this care. Care for children and adolescents is provided through Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone.
We are at the forefront of concussion research. Current research focuses on the impact of a concussion on vision and brain processing, rapid sideline screening, group therapy treatments, and better ways to use imaging to understand the pathology of concussion. Our researchers are working to establish a standardized approach to treating children and adults with head injuries that is firmly grounded in evidence-based research.
