Weekend Extra: Advanced Stroke Care
Stroke survival often hinges on a combination of how quickly treatment is administered and the type of intervention that's available. The good news is that it's possible to recover from a stroke with minimal complications and long-term disability.

Stroke is a leading cause of death in the United States and is a major cause of disability for adults.

On this Weekend Extra, Jessica Boyington talks to Dr. Michelle Smith, a Neurosurgeon with Main Line Health.

Dr. Smith helps us understand the different kinds of stroke, why a stroke is a medical emergency, and how immediate intervention can lead to better outcomes.
