Stroke Treatment in Beijing, China
Stroke is a heavy medical condition (also known as a cerebrovascular accident, or CVA), which is usually induced by a disturbance in the blood supply to the brain. Symptoms may vary, depending on the area of the brain that is suffering a stroke. Typically, symptoms start suddenly, within seconds or minutes, and often include: facial weakness or numbness, abnormal speech and arm drift. Stroke is a medical emergency, since it can cause permanent neurological damage and complications, or, in worse cases, death.
As was said, stroke is a medical emergency, so it has to be treated quickly and efficiently. The longer the patient suffers a stroke, the bigger the neurological damage that ensues. Through the use of the high-end compound operating room, patients at Puhua are treated much more efficiently, without waiting to be admitted. After the accident has been dealt with, the patients are treated for the lingering neurological damage and complications.
This is done through the Puhua hospital's famed "Robotic Brain Stereotactic Technique", where first a 3D map of the patient's brains is created. This map allows the robotic system to precisely navigate the brain of the patient and drain the hemorrhaging blood or the clogged artery, depending on the case. Since the brain is the most sensitive area of the human body, even the smallest mistake can create lasting negative effects, which is why robotic surgery is a much better option than craniotomy which was used before. The robotic system can operate in the brain with the precision of 1mm.
The robotic stereotactic surgery used in Beijing Puhua International Hospital owns minimally invasive, safe and reliable features, can quickly and accurately locate the intracranial lesions and know its site, size, volume, shape, and the surrounding brain tissue; also, it can rapidly and precisely find the best surgical path and damage, regulate, and repair the intracranial lesions. Especially useful for those intracranial deep lesions, multiple lesions, and lesions located in main functional areas which are not suitable for craniotomy, as well as for elderly patients and fragile patients who can't tolerate craniotomy, the stereotactic surgery has irreplaceable characteristics compared with other technologies.
After relieving the pressure on the brain, the patients are directed to physical therapy (rehabilitation), which, in combination with the Traditional Chinese Medicine, is used to strenghten the patient's body and boost its ability to heal itself.
