Stroke care

When a stroke occurs, acting fast reduces the likelihood of long-lasting brain damage. The time to administer lifesaving clot-dissolving medication is faster than the national average of one hour after entering the emergency room. A specially trained medical team, including neurosurgeons, are available 24/7 with advanced technology and techniques to mitigate brain damage from a stroke.

Types of stroke

Our neurological team is ready and equipped to treat all types of stroke. A stroke is an interruption or change in the blood flow to the brain, which can happen in different ways. The most common type of stroke is ischemic, but they are just one of three types of stroke:

  • Hemorrhagic strokes — Occur when a blood vessel in the brain ruptures, allowing blood to flow freely into the skull and brain tissue
  • Ischemic strokes — Occur when plaque builds up in the arteries causing it to become blocked or narrowed
  • Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) — Caused by a temporary blockage of the artery, symptoms go away within 24 hours

Stroke symptoms

Stroke symptoms occur suddenly, but can differ depending on the part of the brain affected. Also, multiple symptoms can happen at the same time.

Call 911 if you or someone you know experiences any of these symptoms:

  • Dizziness, trouble walking, loss of balance or loss of coordination
  • Sudden confusion
  • Sudden severe headache with no known cause
  • Sudden weakness or numbness of face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body
  • Trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Trouble speaking or understanding
