Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Norton Children’s board-certified neurosurgeons are led by Thomas M. Moriarity, M.D., Ph.D., a recognized leader in the field with deep experience and specialized training. Our physicians have the sophisticated tools and skill to give you and your child a precise diagnosis and a treatment plan for a traumatic brain injury that minimizes risk so your child can get back to being a kid.

Where to go for a traumatic brain injury

In 1988, Norton Children’s Hospital opened Kentucky’s first Level-1 Pediatric Trauma Center. Today, we are still the local area’s only Level-1 Pediatric Trauma Center. If your child has suffered a traumatic brain or spinal injury, our dedicated team will be with you from diagnosis to treatment.

Injuries to the brain and spinal cord can vary dramatically, but we approach every case with a passion and proficiency that is unmatched in the industry. We are nationally recognized as one of the country’s best pediatric hospitals for a reason. Our multidisciplinary approach ensures your child gets a customized treatment, and we do our best to help you understand why we are recommending the care plan we present to you.
