When patients arrive in our Emergency Center having a potential "brain attack," we may give them tPA, a clot-busting agent to decrease the neurological damage that strokes may cause. Studies have shown that the quicker you receive medical attention following a stroke, the less likely you are to have a permanent paralysis or complete debilitation to your brain and nervous system.
The Stroke Center is a division of the Neuroscience Center. Our physicians are dedicated to helping patients recover from having a “brain attack.”
