Norton Children’s Stroke Clinic

Stroke in children can be associated with a number of conditions, such as congenital heart disease, sickle cell disease and vascular malformations. Children who experience stroke may develop chronic conditions such as trouble with speaking, epilepsy and/or cognitive and motor impairment. Norton Children’s Stroke Clinic offers a multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach to evaluation and treatment of children at risk of or who have experienced stroke.

Treatment

Children who experience stroke will receive multidisciplinary treatment with different pediatric specialty providers with the goals of recovery and prevention of future strokes. Our providers are dedicated to treating children with a collaborative and coordinated approach. Our specialists create a treatment plan unique to each child that minimizes stroke risk so the child can get back to being a kid again.
