Dr. Nitin Sethi was named Director of the Weill Cornell Medicine Concussion and Brain Injury Clinic, where he will head up an outstanding multidisciplinary team that treats adult and pediatric patients who have suffered head injuries. Dr. Sethi will be joined on the leadership team by neuropsychologists Kenneth Perrine, PhD, ABPP-CN, and Amanda Sacks-Zimmerman, PhD, ABPP-CN, and child neurology specialist Barry Kosofsky, MD, PhD.

The Concussion and Brain Injury Clinic differs from other facilities in that it takes a neurological, not rehabilitative, approach to a neurological injury.

Dr. Sethi is a board-certified neurologist who is a concussion consultant with the NFL and is the Chief Medical Officer of the New York State Athletic Commission, which oversees combative sports and professional wrestling. Dr. Kosofsky is board-certified in both child neurology and brain injury medicine, with special interest and expertise in pediatric traumatic brain injury; he is the director of the Pediatric Concussion Clinic. Dr. Perrine is a board-certified clinical neuropsychologist who specializes in mild traumatic brain injury and who is the consulting neuropsychologist for the New York Jets and New York Islanders, where he evaluates players with concussions for return to practice and play. Dr. Sacks-Zimmerman is a board-certified clinical neuropsychologist who specializes in assessing and treating neurological disorders with cognitive remediation as well as researching the cognitive impact of brain injury.  Visit the Weill Cornell Medicine Concussion and Brain Injury Clinic for more information.
