Revolutionary New Concept of Stroke Care
Nowadays Stroke Neurosurgeons prefer high quality MRI angiogram or cerebral angiogram to search for the real cause of stroke and treat accordingly; so as to prevent stroke from recurring within short period of time.
Extending Salvage of Acute Stroke for Golden 8 hours
HKBSSP introduces the new ‘Golden 8 Hours’ concept for emergency treatments for acute ischemic stroke: minimally invasive endovascular procedure (namely Mechanical Thrombectomy) for Brain Revascularization, it precisely fills the gap and deficiency of The Old Golden-3 to 4.5- Hours Regimen of ivrtPA.
Time is Brain
Transient ischemic attack (TIA) is "warning stroke", is the strong predictor of a major stroke. It (TIA) is also often known as "minor stroke" that produce stroke-like symptoms but of no lasting brain damage.

Stroke Prevention - Stroke Screening
Stroke is formed as a result of cerebral vascular deficits, its incidence increases exponentially from 30 years of age. In fact, the signs of stroke are traceable through risk screening, in which we can identify the health status of the cerebral vessels, intervention can be taken to lower the risk of strokes.
Comprehensive Stroke Care Service
Stroke Rehabilitation should begin as soon as the patient's medical condition has been stabilized. The first aim is to prevent such secondary problems as stiff joints, falls, bedsores and pneumonia.
Cervical spine surgery may be indicated for:
Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion is a common surgical procedure used to treat neck problems such as bulging, herniated disc, degenerative disc disease and spinal instability etc. Discectomy is the removal of the disc and any fragments between the vertebrae. After the disc is removed, the space is filled with a bone graft, the goal is to help the bones to fuse together into one solid bone. This is known as fusion. In order to provide stability during fusion, the doctor may reinforce a metal plate screwed into the vertebrae (cage, screw and plate).The expected outcomes of this operation are to treat for symptoms due to cervical spondylosis aims to relieve pain and prevent further permanent damage to your nerves. Your mobility of neck will be reduced after fixing the disc.
The operation is performed under general anaesthesia. The approach to the cervical spine may vary with individual patient. It can be accessed from the front or from the back. X-ray may be used in the operation room to confirm the level of operation.
After the patient is awaken from the anesthesia, oral feeding may be started. A normal diet may be resumed as instructed after recovery from anaesthesia. Make sure there is no difficulty in swallowing when resuming normal diet. After general anaesthesia, you may experience discomfort in the throat after tracheal intubation. The side effects of anesthesia including feel tired, drowsy, nausea or vomiting. Inform the nurse if symptoms persist or worsen. You should inform the nurse of wound pain. Proper pain relief treatment by injection or oral medication may be prescribed by the doctor.
Patient would be discharge in 1-2 days when the patient can take oral food and pass urine by himself / herself with health condition.
In special patient groups, the actual risk may be different. Other complications may occasionally occur. For further information please contact our spine surgeon.
