Stroke is the #1 leading cause of adult disability. CHI Memorial offers award-winning, exceptional care for stroke and other conditions that affect blood vessels and circulation in the brain. When blood vessels in the brain are blocked, malformed or begin to bleed, oxygen is cut off from critical areas of the brain, often leading to a stroke.
Fortunately, here in Chattanooga we have a world-renowned medical team to combat stroke and its potentially deadly and debilitating effects. CHI Memorial is a Joint Commission Certified Stroke Center, offering fast and highly effective treatments for stroke including clot-busting medications and the most up to date minimally invasive therapies where clots can be mechanically removed from the brains of stroke patients within minutes.
Our team has been at the forefront of stroke research and innovation for more than 20 years and are considered one of the most experienced teams in the care of stroke patients worldwide. Choosing CHI Memorial guarantees that you or your loved one will receive the very best care that can be delivered anywhere and offers full access to all the latest clinical trials involving clot busting medications with extended treatment windows, “neuro-protectants,” and devices.
The clinical trial opportunities are a critical part of assuring the best chance for improvement for your loved ones. No other hospital in our region can compete with the clinical experience and leading-edge technology offered 24/7 at the CHI Memorial Stroke & Neuroscience Center.
