To reduce the risk of another stroke, fix what’s wrong first. Consider adding medications to control blood pressure, cholesterol and reduce blood clotting.
Our comprehensive approach to stroke care includes:
* The latest advances, ranging from “clot-busting” drugs to improved techniques for vascular surgery
* State-of-the-art facilities and the latest technology
* Exceptional specialists in cardiology and radiology, as well as experts in rehabilitation, nursing and emergency medicine
* A dedicated, stroke-trained specialist to coordinate the stroke patient’s care
Our physicians and nurses work closely with our stroke patients’ primary-care physicians to coordinate treatment plans and evaluate progress.
Additionally, we place a high priority on research that may lead to shorter hospital stays and speedier recoveries, and may improve the possibility of preventing stroke in the future.
