When a stroke happens, every minute matters.
The faster you are diagnosed and treated after a stroke, the better the chances for recovery. That’s why the Stroke Center at UC San Diego Health System is available 24 hours per day, seven days a week, providing an immediate response from a team of specialty-trained experts.
UC San Diego Stroke Center physicians are internationally recognized as leaders and experts in the fields of stroke care, prevention and research.
Ischemic stroke is caused by a lack of blood flow to the brain. In an emergency, UC San Diego stroke physicians use catheters to open blocked arteries or give powerful rescue medications that dissolve blockages.
After a stroke, our physicians find and treat the source or cause of the blockage to prevent another stroke.
Primary and Secondary Treatment of Ischemic Stroke
Hemorrhagic stroke refers to bleeding in the brain. Spontaneous bleeding may be caused by high blood pressure or a structural lesion, such as an aneurysm. UC San Diego Health System has the power to help.
