This animated video from Boston Children’s Hospital can help both kids and adults understand why pediatric strokes happen and how we treat them.
A pediatric stroke can occur at any age in kids, from newborn babies to teenagers. They often have different signs and symptoms of stroke and require specialized pediatric care.
Our diverse team of specialists in the Stroke and Cerebrovascular Center at Boston Children’s Hospital provides fast, comprehensive evaluation to identify quickly if and why a stroke has occurred. We are skilled in administering therapies in the earliest stages of stroke that are designed to remove blockages of blood vessels in the brain. Our team also provides long-term stroke care and support as your child grows.
