New TBI Treatment
Dr. Linda Isaac, the Director of Rehabilitation at the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, has begun a program to help TBI survivors and others with a new treatment called Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. This new treatment and associated pilot test program recently received approval of the Federal Food and Drug Administration. By using specialized equipment that creates magnetic stimulation to the brain, her program has had success with improving the cognitive abilities of acute TBI survivors. This is a very new and interesting TBI treatment development. We will be sure to keep in contact with Dr. Isaac and hope to share her progress with you over the coming months.
