Treatments

Hospital specialists who treat stroke include emergency physicians, cardiologists, interventional radiologists, neuro-, vascular and general surgeons, neurologists, and hospitalists.

The hospital offers a variety of stroke treatments at its Bradley Memorial and New Britain General campuses, including:

Medications

tPA, a clot-busting medication shown to significantly reduce long-term disability if given within three hours of the stroke.

Minimally Invasive Procedures

These procedures can remove or break up clots.

Secondary Stroke Prevention

A team of healthcare professionals works with each patient to identify risk factors for, and prevent, a second stroke. 

The team develops a care plan for each patient that may include physical, occupational and/or speech therapy and other rehabilitation, as well as a stroke prevention program that may include diet and other lifestyle changes. 

Team members include the Stroke Program coordinator; physicians (hospitalists and neurologists); physical, occupational and/or speech therapists; registered dietitians; and Care Coordination staff.
