TRAUMA

 

 

No one expects to suffer brain or spine trauma. And yet hundreds of adults and children are rushed to Indiana trauma centers each year. It is very often the Goodman Campbell neurosurgeon who responds, expertly assessing the patient's condition and creating a plan of care that mobilizes a team of specialists. This is why we have a neurosurgeon onsite around the clock at one of the state's only Level I trauma centers. In these critical moments, timing and experience make a world of difference in patients' lives.

Check out the videos and diagrams in our Neuropedia for an even better understanding of trauma-related treatments.

 


 

Common questions

WHY IS TIMING SO IMPORTANT?

Rapid assessment and intervention are critical in managing severe illness or injury and minimizing further damage or pain-the chief reason an Goodman Campbell neurosurgeon is onsite around the clock at one of the state's only Level I trauma centers. As the point person for a patient's care, the neurosurgeon enlists the collective skill of our experts and healthcare partners, including physiatrists, interventional neuroradiologists and complex spine specialists. Our neurosurgeons are also available to care for patients at other hospitals and offices in the Indianapolis area.

 

WHO DELIVERS NEUROTRAUMA CRITICAL CARE?

A group of more than fifteen neurosurgeons recognized as national and international authorities on brain and spine care. Several of our surgeons also specialize in pediatric brain and spine trauma at one of the state's only trauma centers with a pediatric focus.

 

WHY DO SO MANY PHYSICIANS AND PATIENTS PUT THEIR TRUST IN YOU?

Because of the experience we have in treating brain and spine trauma and because of the commitment we have toward preventing it. As members of the American Brain Injury Consortium, Goodman Campbell neurosurgeons dedicate their time and expertise to the identification of effective new treatments for traumatic brain injuries. We also co-sponsor an award-winning national program called "ThinkFirst," which educates children and adults on ways to prevent traumatic injuries.
