When it comes to stroke care, not every hospital is the same.
Comprehensive stroke care, by definition, must have access to the latest diagnostic and therapeutic advancements in the field to provide patients with unparalleled diagnostic and therapeutic advancements. UHS continually invests the time, talent and dollars for UHS Wilson Medical Center to offer the best comprehensive stroke care provided by skilled New York stroke doctors and recovery specialists.
Until recently, the primary treatment for stroke was a drug called tPA, which must be administered within three hours of the onset of stroke symptoms. Now, only at UHS, a neurovascular specialist can perform an intraarterial tPA — a sophisticated procedure that is effective up to six hours after a stroke attacks.
If you’re experiencing signs of a stroke, our New York stroke doctors can give you the comprehensive care that you need
