Neurosurgeon Dr. Charles L. Rosen Discusses Fall Sports Safety


Morgantown, WV, August 04, 2018 --( Dr. Charles L. Rosen, a neurosurgeon whose expertise is focused on cranial base and neurovascular surgery, as well as complex intradural tumors of the third ventricle, posterior fossa, and spinal cord, launched his website,, in May 2018. He has recently added information on fall sports safety and concussions.

Dr. Rosen's latest video discusses traumatic brain injuries in contact sports, such as football, soccer, rugby, and cheerleading.

"We should really be talking about traumatic brain injury because that's what a concussion is," said neurosurgeon, Dr. Rosen. "A concussion is when the head of your child or your own head is hit so hard that the brain actually stops functioning, whether it be briefly or for a longer period of time. Most organized sports will have your children tested for their neurologic function before they're allowed to participate in those sports. Should anything occur during the activities, they will be immediately tested to ensure no change in their function."

Dr. Rosen strongly believes that no child should be allowed to participate in sports while they're suffering the effects of a concussion.

"In most sports, where there's competition, collisions can sometimes be inevitable and it's those collisions that often can result in a concussion–in traumatic brain injury," said Dr. Rosen.

Dr. Rosen served as Department Chair of Neurological Surgery at West Virginia University (WVU) School of Medicine from 2012 through 2017, following his 2011 appointment as Interim Department Chair.

Dr. Rosen joined the faculty at WVU in 2001 and held various positions in the WVU Department of Neurosurgery, including vice chair, program director of the neurosurgery training program, director of research and the neurosurgical research laboratories, and director of cranial base surgery.

Dr. Rosen also specializes in aneurysms, cranial base tumors, meningiomas, neurovascular surgery (including clipping of aneurysms), as well as stroke research and traumatic brain injury.

Dr. Rosen's Curriculum Vitae and his video introduction are included on the website.
