Colorado Pediatric Stroke Program Clinics
Children's Hospital Colorado Stroke Program has three comprehensive care clinics, each occurring on a bi-monthly basis.
Arterial Ischemic Strokes (AIS) clinic
The AIS clinic was established in 2003 for the evaluation and care of neonates and children who have suffered a stroke due to inadequate blood flow to the brain. This clinic also sees children who have had episodes of transient ischemic attack, "TIA," or "mini-stroke". Currently, there are more than 100 AIS patients in the Rocky Mountain Region that are treated and followed through this clinic.
The AIS clinic incorporates the disciplines of neurology, hematology, rehabilitation, neuropsychology and radiology, with the additional involvement of neurosurgery, rheumatology, and cardiology when appropriate.
This team thoroughly defines stroke risk factors for patients to facilitate optimal decision-making for immediate and long-term medical treatments. We provide safe and effective treatment plans for our patients to help prevent future strokes.
Hemorrhagic stroke clinic
The Hemorrhagic Stroke clinic focuses on the evaluation and long-term care of children who have suffered bleeding that affect their central nervous system function, and children with and without known underlying bleeding disorders.
Cerebral Sinovenous Thrombosis (CSVT) clinic
The CSVT clinic has evolved out of the long-standing Thrombosis Clinics at Children’s, in order to provide devoted and coordinated neurological, hematological, and ophthalmological care for children who have suffered blood clots in the brain.
We request that you send us a copy of your child’s pertinent medical records prior to your visit, unless they were obtained at Children's Hospital Colorado.
