Stroke Prevention Center at NNA

The Stroke Prevention Center at NNA was developed to provide proactive diagnosis and preventative treatments for patients at risk for stroke, and to provide comprehensive care, rehabilitation and education to patients who have already suffered a stroke.

Our team of specialty-trained physicians, nurses and allied medical staff, along with the newest technologies in diagnostic procedures, allow for a streamlined continuum of care conveniently located in the outpatient setting.

What is a Stroke?

A stroke is a "brain attack" that occurs when blood flow to an area of the brain is interrupted. Stroke is the No.1 cause of chronic adult disability in the U.S. and affects 750,000 people annually in all age groups.

The risk of stroke can be reduced through heightened awareness of risk factors and warning signs - such as TIAs - and by seeking care immediately after the appearance of stroke symptoms.
