Modern Advances in Stroke Diagnosis and Rehabilitation

Professor Navaz Karanjia

Every year in the United States more than 795,000 people have a stroke. It is the fifth most common cause of death and the leading cause of disability in the United States. This lecture will explain how to recognize the signs and symptoms of stroke so that you can perhaps help save a life. The lecture will also summarize cutting-edge treatment options for acute and post-stroke care, including where they are available in San Diego, and will discuss how to prevent stroke.

Instructor: Navaz Karanjia, MD, is Associate Professor of Neurosciences and Anesthesiology at UC San Diego and Medical Director of UCSD Health’s Neurocritical Care Program and Neuro-Intensive Care Unit, which she founded in 2011. The Neuro-ICU team provides 24/7 expert care to critically ill patients who may have severe brain injury from stroke, seizures, trauma, or brain tumors, or may be recovering from a neurosurgical procedure.
