Traumatic Brain Injury

Fabiano Vieira was the 10th ranked bull rider in the world, but a bull named Stone Cold Crazy put his quest for a PBR championship on hold. After suffering a fractured skull and a traumatic brain injury, Fabiano had to re-learn how to walk before he could even think about riding again. His competitive spirit helped push him through rehabilitation at our Dallas hospital. Now he has his sights set on getting back on the bull.
