Technology and Treatments

Even before a patient with signs of stroke arrives in the Silver Cross Emergency Department, a Code Stroke protocol in activated utilizing a team approach.  

Our goal is to make sure that every patient receives the right treatment at the right time.  Stroke patients may receive Thrombolytic drugs, tPA, or a neuro interventional procedure in our state-of-the-art biplane angiography suite.

This equipment allows specialists to extend the treatment window to stop a stroke, and even reverse its effect.  With the biplane angiography system, endovascular and surgical procedures are performed faster and with a greater level of safety than ever before. 

Time is brain, and thanks to the advanced technologies at the Silver Cross Neuroscience Institute, the treatment window for stroke can be greatly extended—even up to 14 hours. When every second counts, nothing matters more than having additional time.
