Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is usually caused by a hard, blunt object colliding with the skull. Common examples may include motor vehicle accidents, assaults with a weapon or a trip and fall accident. A TBI can also occur due to a sudden jolt that violently forces the brain against the inside of the skull.
Regardless of the cause, a suspected TBI warrants immediate assessment from a qualified medical professional. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, our doctors have the qualifications, experience, and tools necessary to determine your injury’s nature and severity. We can also offer several treatment protocols that are effective in stemming the tide of damage.
TBI Diagnosis and Treatment Protocols
Diagnosing a traumatic brain injury involves a range of neurological assessments. Tests are designed to establish levels of thinking, memory, coordination, motor skills and reflexes. Imaging technology such as computerized tomography scans (CT scans) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are used to support any findings.
Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is committed to providing patients with rapid access to a traumatic brain injury diagnosis. We understand that time is of the essence and that any delays could result in reduced treatment effectiveness. By limiting the number of patients we see each day, Dr. Armin Oskouei has created a culture where every treatment protocol involves individualized attention.
You are more than a number to our team, which is expressed in the personalized care offered at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. No two treatment protocols for TBI are the same at our Georgia offices. As part of a one-on-one consultation, you will have the opportunity to share any specific requirements so we can tailor your treatment experience to ensure convenience and affordability.
