Stroke Prevention Clinic at LIJ Medical Center

Because many people do not know if they are at risk of having a stroke, the Cushing Neuroscience Institute has developed a Stroke Prevention Clinic at LIJ Medical Center.

The facts are:

  • Every 45 seconds, someone in America has a stroke.
  • About 700,000 Americans will have a stroke this year.
  • Stroke is our nation's #3 killer and a leading cause of long-term disability.

Do you know:

  • If you at risk for a stroke?
  • If you have risk factors that can be altered?
  • What you can do to prevent a stroke?
  • Which medications can prevent a stroke?

Our program can help reduce your risk of suffering a stroke. Utilizing technology and the medical expertise of our fellowship-trained stroke neurologist, Dr. Richard Libman, and our nursing staff, the Stroke Prevention Clinic evaluates individuals who may be at risk for a stroke and helps them prevent it. A visit to the clinic includes:

  • A detailed physical exam and history.
  • An ultrasound of the carotid artery (painless evaluation of the major arteries in the neck which supply blood to the brain).
  • A risk factor analysis.
