You are your brain
Your every thought and every movement is controlled by your brain and central nervous system. Together, they store all the knowledge and experience that makes up who you are. When you experience a stroke or other brain injury, you may experience difficulties, including memory issues and speech impediments. It is critical that you have access to the best care as quickly as possible. Good Samaritan Medical Center is here to help with recovery.
Talk to one of our neurological experts and learn how to protect yourself.
Treatment for both your mind and body
Almost 800,000 Americans suffer a stroke every year. Nearly 85 percent survive, in large part due to the fast response of doctors at primary stroke centers like ours.
Unfortunately, a stroke may cause lasting brain trauma that impacts your recovery and reduces the chance of leading a normal life. Although a stroke is one common cause of neurological problems, it’s not the only risk. Your brain can be injured in an accident or compromised due to epilepsy or other medical conditions. Treat both your mind and body with advanced neurological care.
