Sherilyn W. Driscoll, M.D.
Traumatic brain injury in children represents a significant public health problem and they account for over one-half million emergency department visits per year. It’s estimated that traumatic brain injuries affect as many as one in five children by the age of 15. These brain injuries can have lifelong effects on a child’s development, including their ability to learn and participate effectively in social activities. Today we’re joined by Dr. Sherilyn Driscoll, a consultant in Pediatric Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Mayo Clinic Children’s Center in Rochester. Her areas of interest include brain and spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, and spina bifida. For more information about the CDC’s Heads Up program, visit
