The Maryland Stroke Center provides comprehensive state-of-the-art management of patients with vascular causes of neurological disorders.
The Stroke Program builds on the mission of the Brain Attack Center by providing a continuum of care for patients following their acute presentation. Inpatient stroke consultation and outpatient stroke clinics are available. A variety of clinical research studies address acute stroke care as well as primary and secondary prevention strategies. In addition, the Neurovascular Laboratory performs carotid duplex/color flow Doppler and transcranial doppler studies.
