Neurologic Rehabilitation Institute
All brain injuries are serious. Some are life-threatening. But in many cases treatment—and healing—is indeed possible. In fact, a high percentage of brain injury patients go on to lead productive and fulfilling lives. Long after rehabilitation has been completed, people with a brain injury need to sustain the gains made in rehabilitation to remain independent. Our goal is to make that outcome a reality.
The Neurologic Rehabilitation Institute (NRI) is an internationally recognized center for the treatment and rehabilitation of individuals over the age of 18 dealing with traumatic brain injuries and other neurological disorders.
Located on the park-like campus of Brookhaven Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma, NRI goes beyond traditional rehabilitation care to provide victims of traumatic brain injury with one of the most comprehensive and advanced treatment programs in America, offering complex care rehabilitation, intensive neurobehavioral rehabilitation and TBI dual diagnosis treatment.
This highly individualized treatment program, created by our interdisciplinary team of neurological specialists, is tailored to each patient’s unique set of needs—but the goal is always the same—to give individuals who have experienced a severe brain injury the highest level of independence possible.
NRI offers a wide range of treatment options and services including:
- Internal medicine
- Medical management
- 24-hour nursing care
- Speech therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Cognitive therapy

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), also known as intracranial injury. is commonly caused by vehicle accidents, bad falls and violence. A TBI occurs when there is an external blow to the brain. Brain injuries are often classified by severity – mild, moderate or severe. Diagnosis of all head injuries should be done by a trained medical professional as soon as warning signs or symptoms appear. TBI patients experience complications from memory loss and sleep deprivation to internal hemorrhaging and possibly death. With early treatment for traumatic and severe brain injuries, the future quality of life can be improved.
Brain injuries often have a wide array of both physical and psychological effects. Additionally many TBI symptoms have a delayed onset, which makes diagnosis significantly more difficult. Mild brain injuries, or concussions, may include dizziness, sleep disturbances, headaches, and a loss of consciousness for a few seconds. Moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries include many of the same symptoms of less severe injuries, but usually more dramatic symptoms such as slurred speech, repeated vomiting, loss of bladder control and seizures are present.
