A Stroke Could Happen to Anyone
A stroke is a sudden problem that affects the blood vessels of the brain. It is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.
There is no typical stroke patient. Each person has unique symptoms based on his/her health and risk factors. Treatment is tailored to the individual. Prevention and early detection are key factors in identifying and successfully treating neurological conditions.
