Stroke Services

If you were having a stroke, would you know it? You'd be surprised how few people know the warning signs of a stroke.

The faster you seek medical help, the better your chances for recovery. Today, clot-busting drugs have the potential to dramatically reduce long-term disability if given within three hours of stroke onset. Even if symptoms are brief and end quickly, it could be a warning sign for a major stroke. Stroke is a serious medical emergency and quick response can make all the difference.

At Maury Regional Medical Center, board certified neurologists and ICU nurses are specially trained in stroke patient care. We also offer comprehensive neurological rehabilition, including occupational, physical and speech therapy.
