Patient Care

Yale physicans

Patients in the pediatric concussion clinic receive comprehensive care from specialists in multiple disciplines.

More than 1,200 Yale physicians provide primary and specialty care for patients through Yale Medical Group. Yale Medical Group delivers advanced care in more than 100 specialties and subspecialties, and has centers of excellence in such fields as cancer, cardiac care, minimally invasive surgery, and organ transplantation. Yale physicians have made many historical contributions, including the first use of cancer chemotherapy, the first artificial heart pump, and the first insulin infusion pump for diabetes. Today they provide such groundbreaking procedures as an “invisible incision” surgery to remove a woman’s appendix, and the use of genome-scale DNA sequencing technology to diagnose suspected genetic diseases. Yale Medical Group is a major referral center for Connecticut and New England, and treats patients from throughout the world.
