California Pacific Comprehensive Stroke Program
Choose CPMC for Stroke Treatment
Each year approximately 700,000 people experience a new cerebrovascular accident (CVA) or recurrent stroke, making stroke the number one cause of disability and the number three cause of death in America today. If identified early, stroke can be medically or surgically treated with great success and many patients who receive early treatment have no residual affects from stroke. Receiving service at a Joint Commission Certified Primary Stroke Center from highly trained stroke specialists greatly increases the chances of full recovery.
Receiving stroke treatment at a stroke center awarded the American Heart Association/ American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines Gold Plus Performance Achievement Award ensures that stroke patients receive treatment according to nationally accepted standards and recommendations. Our tPA rate (25%) far surpasses the national average (5%) and our door-to-needle times are all typically within 60 minutes.
IF YOU THINK YOU ARE HAVING A STROKE CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY.
What these accomplishments mean for our patients is that we have made exceptional efforts and follow national standards, guidelines, and protocols that can significantly improve long-term outcomes and recovery for stroke patients.
Additionally, California Pacific's Davies Campus is home to our Neurovascular Surgery and Neurointerventional Radiology Suite, one of only a handful nationwide. In the NIR suite we treat cerebrovascular aneurysm with clipping or coiling techniques or an open procedure if necessary.
