Brain Trauma Injuries Treatment
Brain trauma can occur from a wide variety of causes, from impacts to penetrating trauma to sudden jolts that violently shake the body. Different degrees of brain trauma will require varying levels and type of brain trauma injuries treatment. Many injuries can require surgical procedures to remove objects or relieve pressure on the brain. Dr. Sina Rajamand is a skilled neurosurgeon that offers such treatment at his practice in Reno, Battle Born Brain and Spine.
The most common causes of brain trauma and resulting injuries include:
- Vehicle accidents
Obviously, any injury to the brain must be taken seriously. You should be thoroughly examined any time you receive an injury or blow to the head. While many brain injuries can cause immediate and obvious symptoms, others may not; some symptoms may be gradually noticeable as they become worse. Dr. Rajamand and his team at Battle Born Brain and Spine use the most state-of-the-art imaging and other diagnostic tools to determine the level, severity and location of brain trauma injuries, so that effective treatments can be administered.
