Rochester's Only Comprehensive Stroke Center
UR Medicine's Comprehensive Stroke Center offers world-class treatment and prevention of stroke, is the region's only Comprehensive Stroke Center and has the area’s only dedicated Neuromedicine Intensive Care Unit.
Stroke is the number one cause of major disability in our country and the 4th leading cause of mortality today. A joint venture of the departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery, our stroke, cerebrovascular and endovascular program aims to provide our area with the most comprehensive stroke care possible, thus ensuring patients don't become another statistic.
We not only understand the physical disability as a result of stroke, but also the economic and psychosocial burden on our community. Our team of neurologists and neurosurgeons have successfully achieved the highest rates of acute intervention and secondary stroke prevention possible for stroke in the region.
