Memorial Hospital adheres to internationally recognized testing and evaluation criteria to diagnose concussions and track their recovery. Our orthopedist and sports medicine specialists have helped define concussion treatment protocols used by professional sports leagues such as the NHL and AHL.
As part of the Mt. Washington Valley community, we have a special concern about concussions and brain injuries - especially as they relate to younger people.

What to Expect
Here at Memorial’s Concussion Center, we take a thorough concussion history, including other important factors such as migraine headaches and school performance. We use state of the art balance assessment tools, as well as conduct a general and concussion-specific neurologic exam. We use internationally-recognized concussion screening parameters to track recovery, and when appropriate we employ state-of-the-art electronic neuropsychiatric testing.
If further consultation is required, Dr. Glazer has developed close clinical relationships with concussion experts in Boston who help with the most difficult cases.
