My poor brittle!

I woke up this morning to my yellow brittle starfish with a horrible problem. The top of his central disc is completely torn off. He's still moving but what I'm guessing is his brains are totally exposed. What do I do.... Momentarily all I have in the tank are hermits, snails, two mithrix crabs, one sally lightfoot and two brittles...one of which is in dire straights. Water specs are all great. Will he regenerate his central disc or is he a lost cause. PLEASE HELP...ANY ADVICE OR COMMENTS WELCOME!!
