The Stroke Strategy That Saves Lives

Six hours. That's how long Bill had, once the stroke hit, to get help. As with any stroke, every second the brain lacks oxygen can lead to permanent damage.

The swift work of the UVA stroke team in removing the blood clot in Bill's brain helped him recover fully and quickly. Without these dedicated specialists, Bill could have been paralyzed, disabled or worse.

Two months after his stroke, Bill is back on his tractor.

Focused Ultrasound Clinical Trials

  • Jeffrey Elias, MD, a neurosurgeon at UVA, is exploring the potential of MRI-guided focused ultrasound to treat movement disorders. Fifteen individuals participated in his clinical trial and all of them are experiencing great results: “significant improvement” in their dominant hand tremor, substantial improvement in their quality of life, and reported essentially no residual disability from tremor at one year after treatment. 

    Read more about the results of this clinical trial and how you can join.
