About the Mount Sinai Stroke Center
The Mount Sinai Stroke Center, one of the first multidisciplinary stroke centers of its kind, was established in 1988 to develop new approaches to diagnosing and treating stroke. Under the leadership of Stanley Tuhrim, MD, the Center has assembled an outstanding team of medical experts who specialize in innovative research-based and clinical approaches to evaluating, treating and rehabilitating patients with cerebrovascular diseases.
The Mount Sinai Stroke Center is a New York State Department of Health-designated primary stroke center and the first Joint Commission-certified primary stroke center in Manhattan. The Center is also recognized as a leader in stroke research and treatment. We have pioneered major advances in medical therapies for treating and preventing stroke, neurosurgical techniques for stroke prevention and innovative interventional neuroradiologic procedures for stroke patients, with the goal of significantly improving the chances that a patient can prevent, or recover optimally, from a stroke.
However, despite these accomplishments, it is clear that there is still much work to be done to reduce the burden of stroke in our community. The Mount Sinai Stroke Center is actively involved in community outreach activities and in potentially groundbreaking research to optimize chronic disease self-management skills in stroke and Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) survivors.
