Critical Care for Sudden Brain or Spine Injury
Neurotrauma refers to damage to the brain, spine or nerves that causes traumatic brain and spinal cord injury. These types of injuries can have serious, long-term effects, including cognitive impairment, nerve damage, spinal cord leakage and severe pain. If you or a loved one has suffered a sudden injury to the head or spine, seek immediate trauma care. Left unchecked, the effects can worsen over time and may even become fatal.
At Texoma Medical Center, we can treat both the initial injury and the neurotrauma that results from it. The program for neurotrauma patient care includes comprehensive diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care. We strive to help patients stabilize, minimize their risks of permanent damage and allow them to maintain their quality of life.

About Our Neurotrauma Team
The neurotrauma team at Texoma Medical Center utilizes a timely, evidence-based approach to caring for neurotrauma patients. With the advanced technology of the intracranial monitoring system and trained neuro-intensivists from the critical care unit, they provide surgical fixation for various types of spine and head trauma.
For patients with polytrauma, treatment involves a multidisciplinary approach and joint treatment by trauma surgeons, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons and acute rehab under the care of physical medicine and rehab physicians.
To help neurotrauma patients achieve the best possible recovery after their procedure, we provide post-operative rehabilitation. Depending on the level of rehabilitation needed, patients have several options for their rehabilitative care. Some patients may need intensive therapy that can be found with inpatient care at TMC Reba McEntire® Center for Rehabilitation. Other patients may benefit from outpatient care provided by rehab specialists at TMC Outpatient Therapy Services or TMC Home Health.
