Kernersville Medical Center Services Stroke & mini-stroke

Accurate diagnosis and rapid treatment of stroke you can count on

Through telemedicine,
you have access to the neurology experts at Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center, a nationally-certified, award-winning stroke program. This service is available 24/7 in an emergency or for ongoing treatment of a stroke, brain aneurysm, concussion, brain tumor and epilepsy.
 

If you or a loved one comes to us with a suspected stroke, our own round-the-clock stroke team will swing into action, make a solid diagnosis and begin the appropriate treatment right away.

The following links below provide more information about our stroke care program.

Emergency treatment for stroke
Call 911 at the first sign of a stroke.
F-A-S-T is an easy way to remember three warning signs of a stroke and what to do:
 
  • F – Facial paralysis
  • A – Arm weakness
  • S – Speech difficulties
  • T – “Time to call 911”

Do not ignore these warning signs, even if they go away. Stroke is a serious medical emergency and time can make a huge difference in your outcome.


Similar symptoms may indicate other medical problems, including a transient ischemic attack, (TIA). These “mini-strokes” are also very serious. Call 911 for help. Our experts can do a TIA evaluation to determine your level of risk for stroke in the future, and work with you to lower than risk.
