Dr. Scott Darling: Hometown help for sports head injuries


Tonawanda News — We at UBMD Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine are the team physicians for numerous local professional, collegiate and high school teams, and are dedicated to providing a personal level of care to each and every one of our many athletes. Our clinics offer state-of-the-art services and procedures with immediate access for patients.

Our primary care and orthopaedic physicians have established a strong presence in the Niagara region. In addition to numerous locations, our expert physicians have access to a state-of-the-art concussion evaluation and rehabilitation clinic at the Summit Healthplex. This is in conjunction with the University at Buffalo concussion clinic and Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center. 

Through these clinics, neuropsychological and biomechanical testing are employed to evaluate athletes and return them to sport as quickly and safely as possible. Our physicians are committed to ongoing research as well, with recent publications and citations in the Clinical Journal of Sports Medicine.

Spreading the word on concussion symptoms and management to coaches, parents and athletes is an essential to averting tragedies such as the one that occurred in Brocton. Sports and athletics will always be an enjoyable part of our culture, yet mindfulness of concussion symptoms and evaluation by physicians trained in these areas are essential. 

We must remember: When in doubt, sit them out!

For more information on UBMD Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine at the Summit Healthplex, call 204-3200.
