 Acute Stroke, known as an ischemic stroke, occurs when a blood clot blocks an artery that carries blood to the brain as explained by Dr. Lee Guterman.

There are two types of strokes; Ischemic (blocked blood vessel) and Hemorrhagic or bleeding (broken blood vessel).

Dr. Guterman tells Linda some of the symptoms people experience when having a stroke. 

He also discusses the way he can help patients such as using coils, stint or open surgery.

Our primary goal at Clinical Neuroscience Services is to provide the highest quality of care for our patients every step of the way.


We maximize patient satisfaction by offering the most up to date technologies, treatments, and analysis, to make sure that each patient receives the time and attention they require. At CNS we leverage advanced technologies to maximize stroke treatment outcomes and rely on an expert team to ensure the highest quality of care - collaborating with stroke neurology, neurocritical care, neuro-vascular surgery, neurosurgery, and rehabilitation medicine to treat patients at CHS facilities. Our highly skilled team relies on digital imaging technologies (CT, MR, and Xray) as communication tools, increasing precision and accuracy in diagnoses and treatment options.

We ensure safe, efficient, and effective outpatient and office care for all our patients, and pride ourselves on effective communication, not only within our treatment teams, but also with patients and families. Patients trust us to effectively communicate the intricacies of illness and treatment plans with both accuracy and sensitivity. Our patients also know that care does not stop with treatment - we at CNS provide long term care and support for patients and their families at every stage of the recovery process.

We are passionate about community health education and spearhead a number of different efforts to educate the local community on all  aspects of stroke and cerebrovascular disease for prevention and treatment.

CNS accepts all patients in need,  independent of financial status, and we strive to provide a positive and healthy work environment for our employees.
