We Treat All Kinds of Trauma and Injuries

Traumatic injuries come in many forms. They include broken bones, concussions, and various sources of severe pain. The staff at Exceptional Emergency Center is equipped to handle whatever type of injury you experience quickly and professionally. We are available at all hours of the day and night to serve you throughout Texas. If you fall at home and hit your head after business hours, do not wait until the following morning for treatment. You may have suffered a concussion or have brain swelling. The last thing you want to do is go to sleep and wait for an appointment. Stop by one of our many facilities right away. Similarly, if you break a bone, come see our physicians. We will use our advanced medical technology to determine an accurate diagnosis and begin treatment.

Important Information about Traumatic Brain Injuries

If you hit your head in a violent collision – be it during a car accident, after a steep fall, or while playing a sport – you may suffer a concussion or traumatic brain injury. The resulting damage following a head injury can include neck pain, headaches, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, and mood changes. If you notice any of these following a blow to the head, visit Exceptional Emergency Center in Texas without hesitation. But even if you do not recognize any symptoms right away, give us a call to discuss the situation. It may be best to stop by for an examination anyway because some signs may take days or months to appear. Traumatic brain injuries and head trauma can have long-lasting effects that hinder daily life. To help reduce or prevent such complications, we will provide immediate care.

Concussions: The Most Common Type of Traumatic Brain Injury

Of all traumatic brain injuries, head concussions are the most common. They are the result of direct impacts, quick acceleration and deceleration, or blasts. If you have a head injury, visit one of our Texas locations immediately for diagnosis. We will determine the grade of your concussion before proceeding with treatment. Grade 1 is mild, grade 2 is moderate, and grade 3 is severe. Each may include brain swelling and needs to be addressed shortly after it occurs. Concussion treatment includes taking a break from regular activities and avoiding repeat concussions. In cases of severe brain swelling, surgery may be required. Exceptional Emergency Center will also advise you on how to deal with post-concussion syndrome. It is difficult to diagnose but often follows a concussion and includes many of the same symptoms. We may prescribe pain medications to alleviate your discomfort.

Our Trauma and Injury Team Can Handle Broken Bones

 

Not all trauma involves the head. Sometimes, you may fall and break a bone. Whether you have a femur fracture, clavicle fracture, or broken wrist, we can help at any time during the day. We have x-ray equipment as well as additional state-of-the-art medical tools to pinpoint your injury and determine a treatment plan. If you take a nasty fall and break your leg, it is not an option to wait for medical care. That is why we are available at any time to provide prompt treatment. Our physicians can immobilize your broken bones, set them back in place, and begin the path to recovery without forcing you to wait in long lines at the hospital or suffer in pain until your family physician can fit you into his or her schedule.

COVID-19 TESTING UPDATE:

The Exceptional Emergency Room staff and physicians care about you and your loved ones. We are here 24/7 for all your emergency care needs.

  1. If you are experiencing fever, shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, weakness, numbness, sensory loss, or any other emergent medical problems, please call 911 or seek medical care immediately at your nearest Emergency Room.
  2. To provide the highest quality emergency medical care to our communities, we are directing all routine COVID testing to outpatient community resources.
  3. Testing through local resources, including your primary care doctor, urgent care, walk-in clinic, or local health department, is appropriate under the following circumstances:
    1. If you have been exposed to a person known to have COVID, and you do not have symptoms, we recommend that you self-quarantine at home and seek testing 4-5 days after exposure. It often takes this long for the infection to be detected by routine lab testing.
    2. If you have no symptoms or very mild symptoms, outpatient testing is also typically appropriate.
    3. Please follow this link for local COVID testing resources.
  4. If you have tested negative, you should still self-quarantine for 14 days from the day of suspected exposure as it can take anywhere from 2-14 days to come down with symptoms of this infection.
  5. Please kindly limit your phone time with our Emergency Rooms as the phone lines are needed to communicate with other health care entities and to provide patients their test results. Thank you for your understanding during this trying time.
