At The Primary Stroke Center, a stroke is always an emergency situation, because Time is Brain
Dr. Timothy Shephard, Vice President of the Neuroscience Institute, talks about the services and specialties offered at the Bon Secours Neuroscience Institute.
Every minute without proper Emergency Room care can lead to irreparable brain damage. No wonder stroke is the third leading cause of death, and the main reason for adult disability in the United States today.
Bon Secours St. Mary's Hospital is a Joint Commission-Certified Primary Stroke Center, offering treatment with intravenous and intra-arterial tPA and MERCI clot removal interventional procedures. Its core team of stroke experts rapidly evaluates, diagnoses and treats patients using the latest medical techniques. At the same time, Bon Secours works to prevent future strokes through education, medication and suggested lifestyle changes.
