At Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center, we support the nationwide effort to ensure that patients coming into the hospital with specific conditions receive recommended care based on medical research and consensus of opinion of physician experts.
When available, Novant Health facilities use nationally established benchmarks for comparison of outcomes at our facilities. We are providing the following information about two neuro-interventional procedures performed at Forsyth Medical Center: carotid artery stenting and aneurysm coiling as well as complications associated with these procedures.
A quality measure is medical information from patient records converted into a rate of percentage that shows how well hospitals care for their patients. You can use this quality information to help you compare hospitals. We encourage you to discuss the benefits and risks of these procedures with your physician.
