Think it’s a Stroke? Call 9-1-1!

During a stroke, “time is brain.” In fact, the National Stroke Association calls stroke, a “brain attack.” With that sense of urgency, the Stroke Care team is available around the clock to protect brain function and save lives for patients suffering from stroke.

Our team of neurologists, neurointerventional radiologists and neurosurgeons collaborates with the Emergency Department to begin stroke care the moment a patient arrives. Clot-dissolving medications, and clot removal by neurointerventional radiology catheterization give stroke patients a better chance for recovery.

Vascular surgeons, cardiologists, internal medicine, and physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians are part of the Stroke Care team to provide a full range of treatment that includes neurocritical care in-hospital and rehabilitative care as necessary.

The Stroke Care team has trained regional emergency medical services, ambulance companies and fire departments to communicate in real time while a stroke patient is being transported to the hospital.

Metro Health – University of Michigan Health is on the clinical and technological forefront of immediate care for patients suffering from stroke. That means you and your family can rely on receiving comprehensive care for stroke close to where you live.
