In cooperation with Fort Wayne Neurological Center, Concussion Clinic provides multidisciplinary assessment of concussions. It involves neurology and neuropsychology, as well as a brief screening measure to assess the physical, cognitive, and emotional impact of a concussion. This information will assist in making decisions pertaining to therapeutic activities, returning to athletic play, academic accommodations, etc.
Airmen with specific medical conditions (e.g. stroke, TBI, alcoholism, etc.) may be required to complete neuropsychological testing to maintain their medical certification. In other instances, prospective airmen previously treated for conditions such as ADHD, depression, etc. may be required to undergo evaluation to establish their eligibility for initial medical certification. One of our neuropsychologists, Dr. Jacob Lutz, is an experienced and respected provider of these FAA evaluations. You can learn more about how we can help with these evaluations here: FAA Evaluations
Presurgical Pain Evaluations
Patients who are considering surgical pain management procedures such as spinal cord stimulators or intrathecal pain pumps are typically required to complete an evaluation with a licensed psychologist prior to surgery. This evaluation helps you and your care providers better understand you as a whole person, ensuring you get the best possible care and relief from your pain. At Fort Wayne Neuropsychology we understand that chronic pain impacts all aspects of your life, including your psychological and emotional well-being. We want to help you on your journey to relief. We also appreciate the many steps involved in the pre-surgical process and pride ourselves on completing these evaluations as quickly a possible so you can keep moving forward.
