Cook Children's Stroke Clinic takes place once a month in the neurology clinic. Because strokes can occur even before a baby is born, we care for children from age 0 to 18 years.
Comprised of hematologists, oncologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, neurophysiologists, rheumatologists, interventional radiologists and movement disorder specialists, the stroke clinic team sees approximately 120 outpatient cases of pediatric stroke annually in addition to our inpatient cases.
Two weeks before each clinic takes place, a team of specialists review the patient files for the upcoming stroke clinic. This helps them to better prepare for each child's visit.
