Progressive pain, numbness, or weakness that affects your head, spine, or nervous system is often the first warning sign something may be wrong. When surgery is the right option for your care, our experienced neurosurgeons at Raghavendra Hospital are ready to help you with your underlying neurological issue.
Spinal cord and head injuries/concussion
Neurosurgical care at Raghavendra Hospital is personalized for your health needs — whether it’s an emergency or a scheduled surgery.
Our neurosurgeons take the time to understand you and how your symptoms are affecting your life, and we listen and do our best to answer your questions. Then, we deliver a care plan that’s right for you.
In an emergency, our care teams deliver prompt care for brain and spinal cord injuries and other neurologic disorders. And because we’re more than emergency care, we connect our patients to the right specialist for follow-up care.
When a condition is life-threatening, our neurosurgeons at Raghavendra Hospital deliver timely care to children and adults with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or spinal cord injury (SCI).
Common traumatic brain injury symptoms may include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Balance problems
- Feeling tired, having no energy
- Fuzzy or blurred vision
- Sensitivity to noise or light
Spinal cord injury symptoms may vary — from having a partial movement to being unable to move your arms or legs or having loss of sensation. The symptoms of a spinal cord contusion, or severe spinal cord injury, include:
- Electric-shock like sensations
- Burning in the arms or legs
- Weakness in the legs
- Bowel or Bladder incontinence
If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, go directly to the ER or call 102/108.
Getting the proper care at the right time is critical for your health.
