In the primary stages of administering to a brain damaged patient or treating a patient after acute brain disorder, it is the Neurosurgeon, but also the Neurologist and the Intensive Care Physician, who are principally involved, applying medical criteria first and foremost. They will, however, be keeping in mind from the outset, that early Neurorehabilitation also requires theearlyparticipation of different experts, if optimum results for the well-being of the patient are ultimately to be achieved.
