Neuro Trauma Program
Charles J. Prestigiacomo, MD, Chief of Service
The Neuro Trauma Program provides evaluation and treatment for the most complicated head injuries, while working to emphasize prevention of these devastating injuries. Scalp repair, aerated sinus exenteration, dural patch repair, open depressed skull fracture elevation, and debridement gunshot wound lobectomy are offered. Working in conjunction with the New Jersey Trauma Center, the Neuro Trauma Program is involved in several major head injury clinical drug trials and retrospective studies. In addition, cerebral and spine tissue oxygenation studies are coordinated in conjunction with the laboratories at the New Jersey Medical School.
