Each year 1.4 million people in the U.S. experience brain injury. VMC's Neuroscience Institute is equipped to handle your brain injury needs from mild concussion to the severe. An acquired brain injury occurs when a sudden, external physical assault damages the brain. Also called a traumatic brain injury, the injury may be confined to one area of the brain or more than one area. Brain injuries may be closed, meaning there is a non-penetrating injury to the brain, with no break in the skull; or, they can be penetrating, meaning an open head injury, a break in the skull.
Some common brain disorders the Neuroscience Institute treats are brain aneurysm, stroke, brain AVM (arteriovenous malformation), brain tumors, and brain injury.
