Treatment

Saint Thomas Health has developed a system for rapid diagnosis and treatment of acute stroke patients admitted to the emergency department. State-of-the-art diagnostic equipment is available 24/7 to provide brain imaging scans that enable our staff of nationally-renowned stroke specialists to conduct the highest level of patient evaluations and utilize clot-busting medications when appropriate.

At Saint Thomas Health, we offer a range of stroke treatment options:

For ischemic stroke, this includes:

  • IV tPA
  • Endovascular intervention including mechanical thrombectomy and carotid and cerebral artery interventions
For hemorrhagic stroke (subarachnoid hemorrhage or intracranial hemorrhage), this includes both endovascular and open surgical aneurysm treatments and other operative interventions.
