Head Injury

Being hit at the right spot sometimes does not require excessive force to cause bleeding in the brain. Immediate evaluation with a CT scan of the brain may be necessary, and at ER Katy, we have CT-Scan on-site for quick, in-depth analysis of any head trauma

If You Think You Have A Head Injury

At ER Katy, we are about making your visit as painless and fast as possible. Walking through the doors, you’ll feel the difference from other emergency rooms.

Today, we’re going to discuss head injuries.

There are several types of head injuries, ranging from minor bumps and bruises to more severe traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).

Some of the most common types of head injuries include:

Concussion: a type of brain injury that occurs when the brain is shaken inside the skull. Symptoms may include headache, dizziness, confusion, and loss of consciousness.

Skull fracture: a break in one or more of the bones in the skull. Symptoms may include swelling, tenderness, and deformity.

Hematoma: a collection of blood outside the blood vessels, usually caused by a head injury. Symptoms may include headache, dizziness, and confusion.

Contusion: a bruise on the brain, usually caused by a direct impact to the head. Symptoms may include headache, dizziness, and confusion.

When you come to our emergency room for a head injury, our staff will first assess your condition and perform any necessary tests or imaging studies to determine the location and severity of the injury. Then, depending on the nature of the injury, you may receive medication to manage your symptoms, observation, or more intensive treatments such as surgery or other advanced interventions.

In cases of mild head injuries such as concussions, treatment typically involves rest and avoiding any activities that may worsen symptoms. Surgery may be necessary in more severe cases, such as skull fractures or hematomas, to alleviate pressure on the brain and prevent further damage.

At ER Katy, we have a proven track record of providing high-quality emergency care for head injuries. Our medical team is highly experienced in treating various head injuries. We use state-of-the-art technology and evidence-based treatment protocols to ensure you receive the best possible care.

We understand that a fast, non-invasive intake process is crucial when treating head injuries, so we have a streamlined intake process designed to get you the care you need as quickly as possible. In addition, our staff is trained in triage and will work to ensure that you receive prompt and efficient treatment.

In addition to providing immediate care for head injuries, we prioritize ongoing prevention to help you avoid future injuries. Our medical team will work with you to develop a personalized care plan that includes lifestyle modifications and other strategies to help you maintain optimal head health.

Prevention of head injuries can include using protective gear such as helmets when engaging in activities that pose a risk for head injuries, such as contact sports, riding bicycles or motorcycles, and participating in high-impact physical activities. It's also important to avoid activities that increase the risk of falls, such as walking on slippery surfaces, climbing on unstable objects, and using drugs or alcohol.

We also understand the importance of compassionate care, especially regarding severe injuries like head injuries. Our staff is committed to providing a caring and supportive environment, and we strive to make your experience as comfortable as possible. Additionally, we pride ourselves on our short wait times, so you can rest assured that you will be seen promptly and efficiently.

Head injuries can be severe and potentially life-threatening conditions. If you are experiencing head injury symptoms, seek immediate medical attention.

ER Katy is equipped to provide immediate and effective care for a wide range of head injuries, focusing on compassionate care and prevention. Don't hesitate to visit us if you are experiencing head injury symptoms. Our staff is here to help you feel better and return to your daily activities.

Took my 2 yr old son on New Year's Eve at 11 pm. They were very prompt and caring. Their treatment was right on the money. He had a very severe allergic reaction.

Everyone here was genuinely concerned, welcoming, and professional. They were knowledgeable and made sure I understood all possibilities, available services, and best practices. If I need them again, I know they will be my best option.

"Had we not taken our son to ER Katy, it's likely he wouldn't have made it through the night!"

"ER Katy Emergency Room saved our son's life. All I can say is that we went to an Urgent Care first, waited a ridiculous amount of time, and after we met [with our nurse we were] sent home. We did not feel comfortable with the "nurse" opinion; he seemed to be getting worse. At 1 AM, we rushed our son to a real doctor at ER Katy in the middle of the night and the doctor (real doctor!) and on-site X-Ray Tech found that my son's liver was cut in half. Had we not taken him to ER Katy (which was very local) it's likely he would not have made it through the night.

They reduced his pain immediately, the staff kept us sane and comfortable. The doctor made calls to transfer him to a specialist. ER Katy Doctors arranged everything. They were perfect, quick, professional, and efficient, and we owe them everything. They have doctors (real emergency room doctors) on staff 24 hours a day. I just thank God for ER Katy."
