Treatments We Provide

  • Medical Management for Stroke

    An injection given through IV, tPA disperses the blood clot that caused your stroke and restores blood flow to your brain.

  • Neuro Rehabilitation

    Our physical therapy and rehabilitation experts don't just work on improving your physical function. We understand that neurological connections with your brain and your nerves affect your physical, cognitive and emotional health. Our holistic approach brings you greater success.

  • Through a small incision in the groin artery, this device uses a separator to advance and retract through a catheter. It dislodges the clot, while a suction tube grabs and removes the clot.

  • Revascularization Device

    The Solitaire® minimally invasive surgical device can open blocked blood vessels. It expands a metal cage to trap a blood clot at multiple points and then removes it. It's great at restoring blood flow fast which is critical to limit the damage of a stroke.

  • Stroke Rehabilitation

    Our stroke rehabilitation program is focused on helping you overcome stroke-related disabilities and relearn basic skills, such as talking, eating, dressing and walking.
