The Brain Injury Clinic serves patients, 18 years and older, who have sustained brain injury after birth (acquired brain injury) due to causes such as tumors, blood clots, strokes, seizures, toxic exposures, infections, metabolic disorders such as (insulin shock), lack of oxygen to the brain, and traumatic brain injury subsequent to a fall or accident. Brain injury is often associated with cognitive, mood, and/or behavior problems referred to as neuropsychiatric problems. Treatment of these problems includes both medications and non-medication strategies. The overarching goal in the management of these problems is to minimize disability and maximize productivity.
- Comprehensive evaluation usually takes about three to four hours. Patients are encouraged to bring pertinent medical X-rays and current medications at the time of the initial evaluation.
- Regular, on-going follow-up, working with a therapist and a neuropsychiatrist. Visits usually last 30-60 minutes. Steps will be taken to ensure that care is coordinated with the patient’s primary care doctor when appropriate.
- Consultations. The Brain Injury Clinic also provides consultation service. A comprehensive consultation evaluation may take 2-3 visits over a period of 1-2 months.
- Brain Injury Comprehensive Rehabilitation and Treatment Services (CRTS) is a three morning/per week program which provides multidisciplinary services to adult survivors of acquired brain injury who have behavioral, cognitive, or emotional difficulties. This program teams with the Johns Hopkins Bayview Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program and Adult Outpatient Services to offer a holistic approach to rehabilitation and treatment services.
