The SIU Stroke Center is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients. Using a multidisciplinary approach, patients with strokes are evaluated both in the outpatient and inpatient settings. Stroke patients are offered state of the art treatment options to improve outcomes.

The team consists of neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, neurology residents and nurse practitioners. The team is specially trained in diagnosing and treating stroke patients.

In this section, we will provide information about strokes: what it is and how it can effect you; what the risks are and the treatments available. Also included in this section are phone numbers and contacts for the Stroke Survivor Chapter.
