Maria Chininis/The Concussion Institute at Gwinnett Medical Center-Duluth
As part of their initiative to improve the treatment of concussions, Gwinnett Medical Center-Duluth is pleased to announce the opening of the Concussion Institute at Gwinnett Medical Center–Duluth.
With the latest state-of-the-art technology and a team of highly skilled experts from across the country, they are committed to raising the standard of care for athletes who suffer a concussion.
With the Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing (ImPACT) program, they can diagnose concussions sooner and with greater accuracy. They offer treatment paths for neuropsychology, visual therapy and vestibular therapy to help athletes successfully recover in order to get back on the field and court safely.
In addition, they have placed certified athletic trainers in numerous high schools across Gwinnett and North Fulton. Their mission is to reduce the chance of follow-up concussions, thereby helping the student athlete’s performance both on the field and in the classroom.
At Gwinnett Medical Center, they understand the competitive nature of sports, but they always hold the athlete’s health and safety first — this is one more way they’re Transforming Healthcare.
Testing the Experts, presented by Confirmatrix Laboratory, introduces you to the top physicians, treatment centers and rehabilitation facilities, researchers, law enforcement personnel and other organizations in Atlanta to discuss their work and examine how drug testing and trends in patient care as well as drug usage plays a part in their day to day operations. Testing the Experts is co-hosted by Wes Warrington and Tracy Youngblood-McDaniel and airs each Friday at 1:00pm EST.
