How We Treat Strokes

When you are having a stroke, every minute that lapses before treatment can mean the difference between losing and saving critical brain functions. When our team is notified by fire rescue that a stroke patient is en route to the hospital, we mobilize and are ready to quickly evaluate and offer treatment.

Our stroke teams can:

  • administer thrombolytics (clot-dissolving drugs)
  • perform neurointerventional and neurosurgery procedures
  • offer patients a wide range of rehabilitation services
