Our physicians and specialists at Baptist Health System are dedicated to providing you with individualized treatment and rehabilitation plans to get you on the road to recovery.
CAROTID ARTERY ENDARTERECTOMY
This procedure is performed in order to prevent strokes in those who have been diagnosed with carotid artery disease. Carotid artery disease is a buildup of plaque in the two larger arteries found on both sides of the neck.
INTRA-ARTERIAL T-PA FOR ACUTE STROKE
In the event of a stroke, time is crucial. Intra-arterial t-PA involves inserting a thin, flexible catheter into an artery in the groin and guiding it up to the area of the brain clot to pull the clot out of the brain.
MECHANICAL THROMBECTOMY FOR ACUTE STROKE
Used as a treatment for acute stroke, mechanical thrombectomy is a medical therapy. This procedure is the only one of its kind approved in the United States that actually removes the clot.
