  • Is there a cure for a stroke?
    "Once a stroke happens, there is a certain amount of brain damage,” explains neurologist Raul Guisado, MD, of Regional Medical Center in San Jose. Watch this video to learn if the damage can be cured or reversed.
  • Unfortunately, there is no cure for strokes. A stroke requires emergency medical attention, and even with early treatment, the condition can be fatal. Severe bleeding or a lack of blood flow in the brain can cause permanent damage, and in many cases, people have lasting physical problems that may affect their mobility, speech, or memory.
