Introducing Advanced Orthopedics' BUMP Concussion Management Program

October 18, 2013

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.
