Blood flow for the brain
A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted by a blood clot or when a blood vessel bursts. The lack of oxygen kills brain cells in the immediate area, often causing symptoms such as weakness or numbness on one side of the body, trouble walking or talking, or vision changes. Immediate access to advanced treatment when you are having a stroke gives you the best chance of recovery.
That's why we offer complete, comprehensive heart and vascular care at Goshen Heart & Vascular Center. Our board certified surgeons, cardiologists, neurologists and radiologists work together in one place to provide innovative care, starting with emergency services and continuing through to rehabilitation.
Every second counts
When a stroke begins, you have a narrow window of time to get the help you need. Lost time can result in more brain damage. That’s why it’s important to know the signs of a stroke.
- Numbness and/or weakness, usually one-sided, in the face, arm or leg
- Severe headache
- Trouble walking or other signs of loss of coordination
- Difficulty seeing
