Welcome to the Boston Children's Hospital Brain Injury Center. We care for children and adolescents who have had any type of head or brain injury.

Treating your whole child

Because brain injuries can cause a vast array of symptoms that may not seem related to the injury, we coordinate care across several specialties — including the Trauma Center, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Sports Medicine, and Neuropsychology. Our team of specialists works together to develop the best approach for treating each child’s individual condition.

Specialized brain injury clinics

We offer four specialized outpatient clinics for children who have had a brain injury: two for children who have had recent concussions and two for more specialized follow-up care after a brain injury.

Our clinics offer comprehensive evaluation, treatment, and ongoing management of brain injuries by a team of various specialists, based on each child’s specific symptoms and needs.

Why Boston Children’s?

At Boston Children’s, our clinicians are international leaders in treating brain injuries, from mild concussions to the most severe traumatic brain injuries. Our unique approach to treating brain injuries is helping to define the best practices in care for brain injuries, from early response through inpatient care and long-term follow-up.

Our team members are actively involved in the community, providing education and injury prevention programs, with the long-term goal of reducing brain injuries and improving outcomes for children who have been injured.
