UCSF Sports Concussion Program

The UCSF Sports Concussion Program is a collaboration between UCSF clinicians from UCSF Medical Center, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital and San Francisco General Hospital. We are dedicated to the highest quality evaluation and treatment of sports-related concussion in children, adolescents, and young adults. A concussion is an injury to the brain caused by a blow to the head, neck, or body. Concussions can lead to significant symptoms, and require immediate recognition and proper management.

Our clinicians are among the nation’s top experts on concussion and brain injury. We are the region’s premier resource for evaluating head injuries and providing the right treatments to keep athletes safe and healthy as they recover from their injuries. Our multidisciplinary team is comprised of experts from many different fields, including sports medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation, neuropsychology, neuroradiology, neurology and neurosurgery.

Because of this combined expertise, we have the ability to evaluate and diagnose all types of sports concussions. We help families safely return their kids to school and sports after concussion.
