    Stroke Prevention Clinic

    Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability for Americans, but it is estimated that up to 90 percent of strokes can be prevented with medical management and risk
    factor control. However, knowing which risk factor to address first in complex patients can be challenging. Barrow Neurological Institute offers a multidisciplinary Stroke Prevention Clinic each month to help individuals understand and manage their risk factors, including:

    Each patient will receive an in-depth assessment, educational materials, and access to additional support and resources for managing their stroke risk. We specialize in the primary and secondary prevention of ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes. We also see patients who have not had a stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) but have:

    • Cerebral microbleeds/microhemorrhages
    • Large artery atherosclerosis
    • Silent strokes/infarcts
    • Vascular/ischemic white matter disease
