MidState Medical Center launches new service to better manage concussions

School-aged athletes across central Connecticut will now have access to comprehensive concussion management services thanks to MidState Medical Center and its partner Hartford HealthCare Rehabilitation Network. MidState opened a Concussion Clinic located at 680 S. Main Street in Cheshire on March 31.

The Concussion Clinic is directed by Dr. Subramani Seetharama, a physiatrist and sports medicine specialist with highly specialized training and certification in concussion management.

School-aged athletes who have had a concussion will receive comprehensive evaluation at the clinic that includes: a history of the injury, symptom overview, testing to check physical characteristics that can be disrupted by concussion, and a follow-up action plan that is individualized to the athletes’ needs. Many athletes note that their symptoms interfere with academic performance and limit participation in activities, so special attention will be paid to return-to-sports/play with referral to other specialists if needed.

Dr. Seetharama will be seeing patients on Monday evenings from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Call 203-.694-8269 for an appointment.
