Crouse Starts Concussion Care Program


Klawitter newsAs part of its developing sports medicine program, Crouse Hospital has started a concussion management and treatment program and has appointed Paul Klawitter, MD, to oversee the service.
With 20 years experience in the medical field, Dr. Klawitter is board-certified in both primary care sports medicine and emergency medicine. He specializes in primary care sports medicine, including assessment and treatment of sports and non-sports related concussion, evaluation and management of non-surgical orthopedic and sports related injuries, fracture care, ultrasound-guided injections, exercise physiology and return-to-play decisions.
Most recently with Ithaca Orthopaedic Group, Dr. Klawitter earned his medical degree from SUNY Health Science Center in Syracuse, where he completed his residency in emergency medicine. He earned a PhD in Biophysics from Ohio State University, where his research included the study of the role of free radicals in muscle fatigue. He completed his primary care sports medicine fellowship at SUNY Buffalo. While there, he was assistant team physician for all of the SUNY Buffalo sports teams. He currently serves as team physician for the Cornell men’s soccer team.

A diplomate of the American Board of Emergency Medicine, Dr. Klawitter holds a certificate of advanced qualification in primary sports medicine from the American Board of Family Medicine/American Board of Emergency Medicine. He is a member of the American Medical Society of Sports Medicine.
Dr. Klawitter’s office is located in Internist Associates of CNY, 739 Irving Avenue, across from Crouse Hospital.
