A Sports Neurology Expert's Expert Dr. Vernon Williams

When it comes to writing a biography of my expertise, I often think of the person reading it who's looking for serious answers to a troubling neurological problem affecting themselves or someone they love. Of course you want to know about my licensure, certifications and qualifications. But that doesn't paint a complete picture of my experience or expertise. More than anything, I think you want to make sure you have found the expert to take the best possible care of the neurological condition you're facing.

For the past 20 years, I have made the field of Sports Neurology my life's work. I am actively engaged in researching and developing innovative and effective treatments and technologies that help people recognize symptoms of a neurological injury sooner, so that the work of treating them can happen faster, and with less potential for permanent damage.

I serve as a neurological medical consultant to local professional sports organizations such as the Los Angeles Rams, Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Kings and Los Angeles Sparks. I also assist local college and numerous high school and youth sports/club athletic teams in this capacity. Living and breathing this field of medicine means striving to educate every athletic population I can about the need for serious attention to neurological injury risks in players at every level of the game.

In an everyday professional capacity, I serve as the Founding Director of the Kerlan-Jobe Center for Sports Neurology and Pain Medicine at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles, CA, Commissioner for the California State Athletic Commission, and Chair of the American Academy of Neurology Sports Neurology Section. Eager to train and mentor the next generation of sports neurologists, I am also the Founding Director of the Sports Neurology Fellowship at the Kerlan-Jobe Center for Sports Neurology and Pain Medicine.
