SSM Cardinal Glennon Concussion Clinic Opened This Month

 

The new SSM Cardinal Glennon Concussion Clinic opened on Dec. 7. The mult-disciplinary clinic staffed by Cardinal Glennon and Saint Louis University Neurologist Raman Malhotra, MD, and Cardinal Glennon Neuro-Psychologist Stacey Woodrome, PhD. will be held each Wednesday from 8 a.m.-noon.

Research across multiple disciplines on pediatric concussions has greatly increased over the years, proving that pediatric brains are more vulnerable to injury and pediatric patients experience more severe symptoms and require more time to recover from a concussion. The Missouri Interscholastic Youth Sports Brain Injury Act (“A youth athlete suspected of sustaining a concussion or brain injury must be removed from competition at that time and for at least 24 hours. He or she must not return to competition until being evaluated by a licensed health care provider trained in the evaluation and management of concussions.”) is a Missouri state law that requires children and adolescents to be seen immediately by concussion experts. With this information, we know we are providing an important service to your patients.

 

To schedule a patient to be seen during the Concussion Clinic, please call 314-577-5338.
