A concussion or other types of traumatic brain injury can affect everyone differently. Common symptoms include headaches, dizziness, imbalance, falls, mood disturbances and memory problems. Most improve within a week or two, but some symptoms last longer and can affect daily life. Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Center at Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience is dedicated to provide comprehensive care that includes clinical evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation for those with concussion or severe traumatic brain injuries.
After a comprehensive evaluation, an individualized treatment plan customized for individual needs will be tailored. Our multidisciplinary team at the Concussion Center includes a Neurologist, a Physiatrist and a Cognitive-Behavioral Specialist. The neurologist, with dual training in epilepsy and headache medicine has a unique skill set to treat not only posttraumatic seizures and epilepsy but also posttraumatic headaches, which are very common after any concussion. The experienced physiatrist can provide rehabilitative treatment options for severe traumatic brain or spinal cord injuries.
Our Neuroscience Center of Excellence is recognized nationally for its work not only in providing most advanced cutting edge treatments, but also work with other centers in US and global to offer groundbreaking Clinical Research. >>Clinical Trials Available in Hawaii
