Traumatic Brain Injury

Research conducted at the Traumatic Brain Injury center has greatly advanced our understanding of how to treat traumatic brain injuries. The current Neurosurgery research project is "Comparison Between Different Types of Oxygen Treatment Following Severe Closed Head Injury".

In recently published research findings, Dr. Gaylan Rockswold and Dr. Sarah Rockswold report that the combined use of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) and normobaric hyperoxia (NBH) therapies provides better outcomes in patients with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) than the standard intensive neurosurgical care recommended for this type of injury.
