Dr. Todd Caze II
Historically concussions were not taken seriously enough. This resulted in a lack of specialization compared to other sports injuries. However, there are now starting to be fellowship-trained concussion specialists. As such, Dr. Todd Caze II is a fellowship-trained sports neuropsychologist. He is one of the first to complete a two-year sports medicine fellowship in pediatric concussion. Dr. Caze is passionate about increasing access to specialty concussion care in order to get students back to the classroom and on the field as soon as possible. This focus on early access coupled with an evidence-based approach to treatment results in a lower cost to families, less life disruption, and minimizes the risk of long-term effects from concussion. “As a biracial male and former collegiate athlete, I know the importance of getting back on the field and to life status quo. The life-long benefits from sports participation are far too great to let this treatable injury get in the way!”
In his free time, Dr. Caze enjoys spending time with his family, coaching his kids’ sports, and golfing.
Dr. Caze worked as a school counselor before going into private practice as a counselor specializing in working with youth. Dr. Caze received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where he was embedded in athletic medicine providing individual and team performance psychology along with concussion management services. Dr. Caze completed his residency at UCLA Semel Institute in adult neuropsychology and did a rotation at UCLA BrainSport with Dr. Chris Giza. Dr. Caze then went on to complete the first fellowship in pediatric concussion in a sports medicine setting at Children’s Health Andrews Institute in Plano, TX. There he trained with Dr. Scott Burkhart and saw over two thousand concussions through sideline evaluations, in-person office, and virtual visits. Many times, patients were seen within an hour of their injury. Dr. Caze consistently worked with youth, collegiate, semi-professional, and professional athletes.
