Trauma Surgical Intensive Care Unit

Providing comprehensive care for the most critically injured patients including blunt and penetrating trauma

Overview

The University of Tennessee Medical Center is 1 of just 5 Level I Trauma Centers in Tennessee and the only one in our region.  Our Trauma Surgical Intensive Care Unit (TSICU) monitors critically injured patients suffering from traumatic brain bleeds, extensive spleen or liver injuries, collapsed lung, spinal injuries, orthopedic injuries, or a combination of multiple injuries.

The TSICU has a dedicated team of providers to ensure optimal recovery for each patient, including trauma attendings, surgical critical care fellows, residents, advanced care practitioners, nurses, and ancillary staff. The unit also has a full complement of licensed caregivers integral to the recovery of the patient, like physical therapists, occupational health therapists, speech therapists, audiologists, pharmacists, nutritionists, and case managers.

Specialty consultants and ancillary services like laboratory, radiology and respiratory therapy are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Trauma care starts at the time of injury and continues until the patient has reached their best level of recovery. We are dedicated to your care and recovery.
