Programs & Services
The risk of stroke is highest during the first year of life, but it can occur any time throughout childhood or adolescence.
Treatment includes neuroprotective measures, which include maintaining adequate blood pressure and supplying fluids and appropriate medication. The patient may also need physical rehabilitation. We make it a priority to give every patient exactly what they need on the journey to wellness.
