Our specially trained team is ready to provide prompt access to the highest level of stroke treatment in the region. Treatments include a clot-busting medicine that is administered intravenously and a clot-retrieval procedure.
Clot-retrieval is a procedure that can break-up a clot and remove it from the brain after the onset of stroke symptoms. When IV clot busting agents are not effective or cannot be used, clot retrieval procedures help to save as many brain cells as possible by removing the blockage in the artery. HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital is the only facility in the area to offer this state-of-the-art procedure.
