What you can expect

While a stroke is often unexpected, we’re here to care for you. Our coordinated team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, emergency doctors and other specialists work together. They’ll get you from diagnosis to treatment as quickly as possible, giving you the best chance for a full recovery.

Treatment may include medication, minimally invasive procedures or surgery. Once you’re stable, you’ll focus on recovery. This may include inpatient and/or outpatient therapy from our stroke-certified rehabilitation specialists. Occupational, physical, speech and aquatic therapies are just some of the ways we’ll help you work toward getting well.
