Stroke Specialists

Morgan Medical Center is an active participant in a telemedicine program with Wellstar Augusta University Health in Augusta, Georgia. The program allows stroke patients within smaller communities to have increased access to stroke specialists.

Through the use of a telemedicine technology, stroke specialists at Wellstar Augusta University Health can look at and talk to the possible stroke patient as they are in our emergency department. This remote evaluation assists our staff with diagnosing an ischemic stroke (caused by a blood clot in the arteries of the brain) and determines if the patient is a good candidate for a clot buster drug, an intravenous thrombolytic therapy drug. Although intravenous thrombolytic therapy is not an option for hemorrhagic strokes (bleeding in the brain), the stroke specialists are able to offer expertise in their management.
