If you suffer from stroke and live in the Atlanta area – we can to help.
At Midtown Neurology, P.C. in Atlanta we will begin by obtaining the patient’s history to help us create the best treatment plan for you. Everyone who has had a stroke — or who is at risk of stroke — needs to know about stroke treatment and care. When a patient displays stroke-like symptoms, our providers, who specialize in managing strokes, will not only confirm the symptoms but also identify the type of stroke, its location, and the extent of brain damage. Treatment decisions hinge on all these issues.
A stroke occurs when a vessel in the brain ruptures or is blocked by a blood clot. Stroke medical treatments work to either open the blockage or treat the rupture. Medical advances have greatly improved survival rates from stroke treatments during the last decade. But the chances of survival are even better if the stroke is identified and treated immediately.
At the Midtown Neurology, P.C. clinic in Atlanta, we have physicians and providers who together treat and prevent stroke. This ideal relationship allows for fast and easy communication between the professionals involved in your care. Also, should the patient have new symptoms while under treatment, the providers work together to see the patient immediately. This constant face-to-face communication occurs throughout the day allowing for a more complete and comprehensive treatment plan. Just as important, our providers will find the cause of stroke and do what they can to help you prevent any further events.
The good news is that 80 percent of all strokes are preventable. It starts with managing key risk factors, including high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, cigarette smoking, atrial fibrillation and physical inactivity. More than half of all strokes are caused by uncontrolled hypertension or high blood pressure, making it the most important risk factor to control. Our physicians and providers at Midtown Neurology, P.C. in Atlanta will work with each patient individually to manage your care.
For those patients who have already suffered from stroke and have residual problems, our providers at Midtown Neurology can assist in the most up to date stroke care and management, including utilizing Botox Therapy in order to help with reintegration into daily life activities.
