Does a traumatic brain injury always require surgery?

The last thing you want to hear is that you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury. Not only is this type of injury difficult to treat, but it can also have a long-term effect on your overall level of health.

If you suffer a traumatic brain injury, it's best to follow the direction of your medical team. They know the best way to stabilize your injury while improving your odds of making a full recovery.

While not always necessary, there are times when a traumatic brain injury requires surgery. Here are some situations that often call for it:

  • To repair a skull fracture: Surgery may be necessary to remove or repair a piece of your skull that was fractured during your accident.
  • To remove a blood clot: Bleeding within or in close proximity to the brain can result in a blood clot, which leads to increased pressure and a higher likelihood of brain damage.
  • To relieve pressure: If too much pressure builds up in the skull, such as the result of a clot or the accumulation of cerebral spinal fluid, it's often necessary to take immediate action to reduce the risk of damage to the brain tissue.

Even though a traumatic brain injury is serious, it's a positive that there are so many treatment options available to your medical team. They'll devise a strategy for stabilizing your situation and helping you start down the path toward recovery.

Once your injury allows, contact your insurance company while also learning more about other steps you can take to protect your legal rights. In the event that you can't do this, a loved one can start the process on your behalf.
