TBI Treatments and Procedures for Sustainable Recovery
When you suffer a traumatic brain injury—mild or severe—your first priority is to treat it. Your doctor should identify the severity and immediately treat any life threatening symptoms. However, if you require it, what types of long-term treatments are available? Are they expensive? Will you eventually fully recover or will you have to continuously treat it for the rest of your life?
You should always discuss these and all your TBI concerns with your doctor first and he should be able to put your mind at ease and provide you with either referrals or suggestions for treatment. Secondly, to prevent your insurance company from denying treatment costs—due to an assumption that you could adjust with cheaper treatments or no treatment at all—you should contact a personal injury attorney before undergoing expensive treatments.
Common TBI Treatment Options and Cost Depending on Severity
- Icepack and/or medication for pain: $15 to ? depending on each prescription cost.
- MRIs, CTs and other head/brain monitoring scans – $1,000 to $3,000 each.
- Surgery – $30,000 to $150,000.

- motor function stimulation

- testing and re-education
- 24-Hour Care – $150 - $400 per day.
