Neuroscience

Indian River Medical Center offers patients expert neurological care for everything from Parkinson’s disease to strokes, brain tumors, and epilepsy. The neuroscience department at IRMC is led by skilled physicians and highly trained healthcare professionals working together to determine the best path of care for each patient.

IRMC has developed protocols to streamline and expedite the care of stroke patients, which includes evaluation and initiation of treatment with a clot-busting drug called tPA within three hours of first symptoms – for patients deemed appropriate. This medication, which has been used for many years as a treatment for heart attack, has now been found to save lives and decrease disability for certain types of stroke. Patients for whom the drug is appropriate must begin treatment within three hours after first symptoms. IRMC has been awarded the Gold Seal of Approval™ and designation as a Primary Stroke Center of Excellence by the Joint Commission, which examined the above protocol.
