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.
