  • Expertise and experience. Mayo Clinic neurologists have expertise and experience in evaluating and treating people who've had a stroke or have other brain and blood vessel conditions (cerebrovascular conditions). Mayo Clinic's campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota, and at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire, Wis., are certified as primary stroke centers by The Joint Commission, a national organization that evaluates and accredits health care providers.
  • Team approach. At a central site, a dedicated staff of neurologists trained in blood vessel conditions (vascular neurologists), brain surgery (neurosurgeons), brain imaging (neuroradiologists) and stroke telemedicine work as a team with emergency medicine doctors and staff at remote sites.
  • Individualized care. Mayo Clinic stroke telemedicine staff gives you individualized care and serves you in your community.
  • Technology. Vascular neurologists at Mayo Clinic use several advanced technologies in stroke telemedicine, depending on the remote site's location and available resources.
  • Network growth. Doctors at Mayo Clinic in Arizona began participating in stroke telemedicine as a trial in 2007, and the stroke telemedicine network has grown since then to 11 remote sites. Staff at Mayo Clinic in Florida launched a stroke telemedicine network in 2010, and staff at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota is developing a stroke telemedicine network.
  • Research. Doctors actively study stroke and stroke telemedicine, including new technologies and other areas.
