Stroke can be a devastating disease and can lead to lifelong disability or death. The diagnosis of stroke, however, is no longer as grim as it used to be. Timely intervention at a certified stroke center can frequently minimize or even reverse brain injury. Coming to Torrance Memorial as an acute stroke patient should give patients, their families and friends comfort and confidence.
Torrance Memorial's multifaceted approach in the treatment and management of a stroke patient begins by taking a physical assessment, a personal history and looking for the signs and symptoms of an acute stroke. Once determined, we move our patient quickly into the diagnostic or imaging study of the brain.
