reat mild, moderate or severe concussion with compassion and unparalleled expertise.”

The effects of concussions on the eyes and vision are an important and emerging area of concern in the treatment of these injuries. “Concussion and brain injury patients often experience difficulty in tracking and focusing. That can lead to problems reading, driving, concentrating in school and using a computer. These patients need to be diagnosed, evaluated and then receive therapy,” said Julia A. Haller, MD, ophthalmologist-in-chief at Wills Eye Hospital.

The J.C.C.C. expects to treat a wide range of patients who suffer from traumatic brain injury: accident victims, injured veterans, and athletes. Said Dr. Taraschi, “If your mother falls and hits her head on the pavement—this will be the place to treat her. If your husband, a returning veteran, has personality changes and double vision, you can bring him here for expert evaluation.”

Dr. Serruya said, “Families will be able to take children, adolescents, and adults to the new Jefferson Concussion Center and get help with every aspect of diagnosis, treatment, and recovery all at one accessible location. This is the same concussion team that treats the Philadelphia Phillies.”

According to the Traumatic Brain Injury Foundation, concussion is the most underreported, underdiagnosed and underestimated head injury. Concussion accounts for 90 percent of Traumatic Brain Injuries and the number of cases range in the millions every year. Nearly four million athletes of all ages suffer concussions every year. Recent research indicates that even mild concussions in childhood sports, inappropriately treated, are putting patients at risk for serious, long-term health problems.

Thomas Jefferson University Hospital was recently listed on the 2013-2014 Honor Roll of top hospitals listed by U. S. News and World Report; Jefferson’s Orthopedics Department is rated among the top 10 in the nation according to U.
