Neuro Trauma

Font Size: [+] [-]

Massachusetts General Hospital is a Level 1 Adult and Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center. MGH has been verified as able to treat the highest severity of trauma patient. MGH admits, on average, 2,000 trauma patients and another 2,000 emergency surgery patients per year, and although the vast majority of our patients are from the Boston metropolitan area, patients are referred to our facility from all over the country.
The Trauma Center Team provides 24-hour coverage for trauma and emergency surgery cases. The around-the-clock physician presence, along with the excellent multidisciplinary collaboration with specialists in Orthopaedics, Plastic Surgery, Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and many other services provides for the ideal management and treatment options for trauma and emergency surgery patients. It takes a whole team of surgeons, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, social workers, chaplains, respiratory therapists, and others to help patients regain good health and function.
The physical proximity with the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital and close association with multiple similar facilities in Massachusetts allows integrated care from initial assessment to follow-up care and rehabilitation.
MGH is also a Level 1 Burn Center and one of a few centers around the country that have the highest level of accreditation by the American College of Surgeons in adult trauma care, pediatric trauma care, and burn care. This enables us to offer care for the whole family in one location, should multiple members of the same family experience traumatic injury.
The MGH Neurointensive Care Unit is a state-of-the-art 18 bed ICU supported by 6-8 full time dedicated Neuro ICU fellows, 8 intensivist faculty, 24 hour video-EEG, portable CT capability, 64-slice helical CT and 1.5-3.0 T MRI with 3D imaging available at all times.
