Rochester’s Only Comprehensive Stroke Center


Comprehensive Stroke Center

The Rochester 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 center aims to provide our area with the most comprehensive stroke care possible to ensure patients don’t become just another statistic.

We understand not just the physical disability from 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.
