Benefits of Telestroke
- Expertise and experience. Spoke hospital physicians work with Mayo Clinic neurologists who have expertise and experience in evaluating and treating people who've had a stroke or have other brain and blood vessel conditions (cerebrovascular conditions). Mayo Clinic's campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota, and at Mayo Clinic Health System sites in Eau Claire and La Crosse, Wis., are certified as stroke centers by The Joint Commission, a national organization that evaluates and accredits health care providers.
- Team approach. At Mayo Clinic hub hospitals, a dedicated staff of neurologists trained in blood vessel conditions (vascular neurologists), brain surgery (neurosurgeons), brain imaging (neuroradiologists) and telestroke work as a team with spoke hospital doctors and other providers at community hospitals.
- Individualized care. Mayo Clinic Health telestroke staff give you individualized care and serve you in your community.
- Technology. Vascular neurologists at Mayo Clinic use several advanced technologies in telestroke, depending on your hospital's location and available resources.
- Research. Mayo Clinic physicians are actively studying stroke and telestroke, including the most advanced treatments for stroke, new technologies and other aspects of stroke care.
