Pat's Stroke Treatment from the UPMC Stroke Institute

Pat, a sixty-six-year-old grandfather, was relaxing on a Sunday afternoon when suddenly he suffered from a stroke. When the paramedics arrived, they decided to airlift Pat to UPMC Presbyterian, a Comprehensive Stroke Center, for treatment.

Doctors immediately rushed Pat into surgery, and performed a mechanical thrombectomy to help clear out the blood clots. After surgery, he was able to speak and respond to commands, something he wasn't able to do when he arrived at the hospital. Within a few days, Pat also was able to walk and move around. 

Before Pat went home, his medical team gave him a comprehensive outpatient care plan to ensure improvement and help him regain his independence. Through physical and speech therapy, Pat is able to continue doing his favorite activities such as wood working and crossword puzzles.
