Expert Treatment for Brian Trauma and Head Injuries

The world we live in is complex and fast paced. In a split second, our lives can be changed forever with a traumatic brain injury. Falls, accidents, and sports injuries are but a few causes of head injury. Hundreds of thousands of lives are affected per year. Brain trauma requires expert management in both the hospital setting and outpatient followup.

Dr. Harrison Mu at Queens Crossing Neurosurgery has a vast experience with managing and treating traumatic brain injury. Having been Director of Neurosurgery at a busy Level I metropolitan hospital, he has insight into managing these complex injuries with a team approach. He has gained the trust of the community and is an active Honorary Police Surgeon.

Affects of Head Injuries

With head injury, the delicate brain can suffer damage. Like jello in a jar that is shaken, the brain can experience direct forces of impact against the unforgiving skull. Indirect traumatic injuries can also occur with the shearing forces upon the deeper parts of the brain.

Brain injuries resulting from head trauma include:

  • Contusions
  • Intracerebral bleeding
  • Subdural blood
  • Epidural blood
  • Skull fractures

Managing brain trauma in the hospital includes:

  • Monitoring pressure within the brain and skull
  • Brain operations to remove blood
  • Skull operations to relieve dangerous pressure build up within the brain and skull

Dr. Mu will Ensure your Concerns are Taken Care of

After leaving the hospital, further non-optimal conditions can develop. One condition is the occurrence of blood collecting on the surface of the brain called a subdural hematoma. Fortunately, most of these can be managed without surgery allowing the body to heal itself and absorb the blood. When this healing does not happen, it is important to seek qualified experts.

Symptoms of conditions that may need neurosurgical evaluation include:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Incoordination
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Unsteadiness
  • Weakness of the arms, hands, legs, or feet
  • Speech difficulty
