The UCSF Neurorecovery Clinic provides evaluation and treatment for individuals recovering from or adapting to acquired neurologic injuries (those that are not congenital or genetic). These neurologic injuries include concussions and other traumatic brain injuries, strokes, spinal cord injuries, and anoxic brain injuries (resulting from a period of insufficient oxygen), as well as those resulting from nervous system infection or inflammation.
Our patient care team includes neurologists, a nurse practitioner, and therapists with expertise in physical and occupational therapy for neurological disorders and speech-language pathology. We provide comprehensive consultations, with the goal of optimizing recovery and rehabilitation for a wide range of conditions. Together, we care for patients throughout the recovery journey, from hospital to home. Our team also works closely with the UCSF Sports Concussion Program and UCSF Neurovascular Disease and Stroke Center.
The Neurorecovery Clinic's Spasticity and Motor Recovery Program is dedicated to helping patients regain movement and function. Techniques for spasticity management include botulinum toxin injections and intrathecal baclofen pump therapy (which uses an implanted device to deliver a muscle relaxant) in conjunction with the UCSF Neurosurgery Clinic.
Many evaluations, including consultations with multiple specialists, can be conducted via telehealth appointments on your smartphone, tablet or computer.
We are part of the UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences.
