Accidents or unintentional injury is the #1 killer of youth in the United States. It is the silent epidemic that is plaguing our country. When the injury happens to the brain, it can result in requiring surgery and long stays in the hospital. People can recover from a brain injury or it can leave a person unable to perform daily living activities or sometimes cause death. For this reason, preventing the accident or injury is a priority.

Often, a person who has had an injury to the brain will be brought to the hospital to be evaluated by a team of doctors, nurses and specialists. At Mission Hospital, we take TBIs very seriously, as outlined in these sections:
