Neurocritical Care Clinical Services
The Division of Neurocritical Care provides comprehensive treatment services for a variety of patients who have or are at risk for acute central nervous system (CNS) injury.
We care for both medical and surgical patients. We facilitate the recovery of patients who have had neurosurgical operations and have a close and collaborative relationship with the Department of Neurosurgery. We also specialize in treating patients who are admitted with life-threatening injuries to the central nervous system. Maximizing the care of patients requires a multidisciplinary team of specialists and communication with patients and their loved ones.
Our services often begin in the Emergency Department and then focus on critical care treatment in the NeuroICU. We also provide inpatient consultation for neurotrauma patients admitted to other services at Mass General. Embodying the philosophy of providing treatment throughout the continuum of care, we see patients recovering from acute brain injury in the outpatient setting in the NeuroRecovery clinic.
