Yashoda Hospital provides you with the right mixture of care and medical supervision for the therapy of patients suffering from a stroke. The Stroke therapy at Yashoda Hospital is a part of our Centre of Neurosciences and is a specialised unit that offers full prevention, treatment and rehabilitation services for patients with conditions related to the brain.
Our dedicated stroke team follows a multidisciplinary approach and works closely with other departments at the hospital and also provides post-stroke care which is critical for the patients who had recently been attacked.
Our stroke therapy unit plays the best role for further recovery through physiotherapy. Yashoda hospital’s physio for stroke patients program includes range-of-motion therapy, constraint-induced therapy, mobility training, etc. in the aftercare for stroke patients.
Why Choose Yashoda Hospital For Stroke Therapy?
We, at Yashoda hospital, manage the journey of the patient in bridging the gap between hospital and home seamlessly and painlessly. We have provided rehabilitation to post-stroke paralysis patients and supported them in managing their daily activities and get their life back to normal.
We aim to retrain the muscles and nerves of the patients that have sustained an injury after the event. Our “continuum care” model ensures that patients get the necessary treatments from our neuroscience department and also receives the continuity of care post-hospitalization by being in constant contact with their primary doctors.
We provide state of the art technologies in different areas of physiotherapy, and thus our hospital has the requisite cutting edge technology to cater to the needs of that particular segment. Our centre provides the following technologies for treatment:
What Is A Stroke?
Strokes (also known as Cerebrovascular condition) are brain attacks that affect the blood vessels of the brain. When the blood supply is obstructed, a stroke occurs. After cancer, stroke is rated as the second-highest cause of death and disability, in non-communicable diseases.
There are usually three types of Strokes:
What are the Treatments for Stroke Patients At Stroke Therapy?
The surgeons at the Centre for neurosciences will treat patients with severe conditions related to Stroke. Treatments include:
Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM)
Carotid Disease (Stenosis)
There are several groups of patients in whom bleeding from a tumour needs to be controlled. Pre-operative treatment of the neck masses or skull base lesions (meningiomas) are performed to decrease the time and risk of surgery. Patients with epistaxis, i.e. persistent severe nose bleeding, may also benefit from tumour embolization
All the above procedures are called Neuro-intervention procedures and are done in a Neurovascular Cath Lab.
What Stroke Rehabilitation Therapy Do We Provide?
There are incidences of serious stroke-related, long-term disabilities rising every year. Our doctor’s focuses on identifying strokes as early as possible and all attempts are made to open clogged arteries to prevent the loss of brain neurons.
The earlier the endovascular treatment is performed, the better the outcome. This is done by using a clot-removing device, which traps and removes a clot from the artery of the brain in a cath lab. The functional outcomes of this procedure are significantly better as compared to traditional treatments of stroke.
We provide constant monitoring and optimised treatment for recovery when it comes to post-stroke care. The post-stroke facility involves speech therapy, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. Our multidisciplinary stroke rehabilitation team includes neuro therapists, doctors, therapists for speech and language training and counsellors to help in relieving psychosocial problems, etc.
