Brain Injury Rehabilitation
TIRR Memorial Hermann provides rehabilitation to individuals with brain injuries of all levels of severity. We treat patients of all types, including those suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI), non-traumatic brain injury, and brain injuries combined with spinal cord injury or multiple fractures and amputations. We are committed to seeing the potential in every person and often give opportunities to those who have no other options. In our commitment to the development of the patients’ full potential, goal setting and treatment planning are creative and aggressive.
An injury to the brain can occur as the result of trauma, a tumor or a disease. Brain injuries often result in physical disabilities as well as significant changes in language, memory, thinking, behavior and personality.
The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program at TIRR Memorial Hermann maximizes outcomes by providing:
Recovery from brain injury does not end when a patient is discharged from the inpatient program. Rather, recovery continues long after the return home.
The programs at the Outpatient Medical Clinic and Outpatient Rehabilitation allow patient and family to transition from the hospital setting to home while continuing to receive intense therapy services and medical monitoring. Brain injury support groups, counseling, education and individualized training also prepare families and caregivers for the patient’s discharge.
The Brain Injury Research Center at TIRR Memorial Hermann is funded by multiple grants from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research and is designated as a Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Community Integration of Persons with Traumatic Brain Injury.
