Director, Complex Concussion Clinic
Atlanta, Georgia, United States
Russell Gore neurologist and biomedical engineer specialized in the vestibular, oculomotor, and balance systems with specific interest in the assessment and treatment of patients following traumatic brain injury. He completed residency training in neurology and a fellowship in neuro-otology and traumatic brain injury research at Emory University. He is the Founding Director of the Shepherd Center Complex Concussion Clinic and Medical Director of the SHARE Military Initiative. In addition he is an adjunct Associate Professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering and part of an interdisciplinary research team developing methods to assess performance and quantify brain injury for military and sports applications. Before starting his career in neurology, Dr. Gore served as a military flight surgeon in the US Air Force including experience at the Air Force Research Laboratory. He was privileged to care for soldiers at home and overseas and experienced first-hand the devastating aftermath of traumatic injuries. His Air Force research focused on brain injury, aviation fatigue, and the development of noninvasive technology to assess pilot performance in advanced aviation systems. These experiences have driven his clinical and research interests in traumatic brain injury, the hallmark neurologic injury seen among both veterans injured in combat and athletes at all levels. Dr. Gore's current research is focused on the assessment and rehabilitation of complex concussions with a specific interest in post-concussive vestibular, oculomotor, and balance dysfunction. He serves as a concussion consultant and advisor for national athletics organizations, college and professional sports teams, the Veterans Administration, and the Department of Defense.
