Orange County Global Medical Center’s highly trained stroke team includes board-certified emergency and trauma physicians, neurologists, interventional neuro-radiologists, neuro-surgeons and other stroke care specialists who are devoted to delivering exceptional patient care. Time is precious when the first onset of stroke symptoms first occurs. As a stroke-receiving center, our team is skilled and experienced in treating stroke symptoms, fast.
A stroke occurs when the brain is deprived of sufficient blood flow, leading to an interruption in the delivery of vital oxygen and nutrients. A delayed disruption to normal blood flow can cause lasting damage to brain tissue. Early administration is proven to improve long-term outcomes and the key to recovery starts during the first couple of hours when a stroke hits.
