Introducing Advanced Orthopedics' BUMP Concussion Management Program

Advanced Orthopedics would like to introduce our Before You May Play (BUMP) Concussion Management Program, spearheaded by Dr. Asim Merchant. BUMP utilizes state-of-the-art computerized neurocognitive assessment tools to help return our patients suffering from concussions and post-concussion syndrome safely back to their work, sports and families. We offer Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing (ImPACT), for baseline and post-concussion assessment of cognitive function. ImPACT's baseline test measures a patient's normal brain activity prior to injury, which aids physicians to both diagnose a concussion and clear the patient for safe play. With the number of head injuries in athletes on the rise, particularly in middle school aged athletes, the ImPACT system acts as a valuable resource for those involved in sports at all levels of play. Our physicians can treat patients according to their base-line test results, even if they received the test at another medical facility. Dr. Merchant is a Credentialed ImPACT Consultant with years of experience in concussion management. During his sports medicine fellowship at University of Buffalo, Dr. Merchant had extensive experience with the cutting-edge Buffalo Concussion Treadmill Test for post concussion treatment. During that time he also served as a team physician for UB's Division 1 football team. View our concussion management page or call our office to learn more about BUMP, ImPACT and baseline testing.…

Advanced Orthopedics Has Received MRI Accreditation by the IAC

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an extremely useful diagnostic imaging tool, performed an estimated 28 million times annually in the United States, enabling interpreting physicians to visualize the structure and function of the body. As it provides detailed images of the soft tissue of the body, magnetic resonance is especially helpful in diagnosing issues related to neurological (brain), musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and oncological (cancer-related) conditions. Early detection of life threatening conditions and other diseases is possible through the use of MRI procedures performed within hospitals, outpatient centers and physicians' offices. While these tests are helpful, there are many factors that contribute to an accurate diagnosis based on MRI testing. The skill of the MRI technologist performing the examination, the type of equipment used, the background and knowledge of the interpreting physician and quality assurance measures are each critical to quality patient testing. Accreditation by the IAC (the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission) means that Advanced Orthopedics has undergone a thorough review of its operational and technical components by a panel of experts. The IAC grants accreditation only to those facilities that are found to be providing quality patient care, in compliance with national standards through a comprehensive application process including detailed case study review. IAC accreditation is a "seal of approval" that patients can rely on as an indication that the facility has been carefully critiqued on all aspects of its operations considered relevant by medical experts in the field of MRI.…
