Preventing a traumatic brain injury

From memory problems and headaches to difficulty at work, people who have suffered a traumatic brain injury may encounter a number of difficulties. Unfortunately, TBIs are not always immediately recognizable and some people experience problems years after the injury took place. In order to avoid the multitude of challenges that a TBI may cause, people should do everything in their ability to prevent a traumatic brain injury.

Cancer and the threat of a missed diagnosis

For Massachusetts residents, the diagnosis of cancer may be a worst-case scenario. When doctors make a mistake in diagnosis, however, the chances of successful treatment often decrease significantly. A doctor’s failure to diagnose cancer can have devastating effects on both the patient and his or her family.

The tragedy of minor pregnancy trauma

Pregnant women in North Adams, Massachusetts, trust their physicians not only with their own health but with the health of their unborn children. Physician care is particularly crucial to the health of mother and child after trauma occurs, but when physicians dismiss minor injuries during pregnancy, the results can be devastating.

The craniectomy: Not always the right choice

A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can have a huge impact on Massachusetts patients and their families. Although patients may experience rapid recovery from mild trauma to the brain, severe head injuries are much more complicated for physicians to treat and may have lifelong effects on the patient. Craniectomy is a popular approach for severe head injuries, but evidence suggests it is not always an effective method.
