Stroke saviour
Operating room

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A state-of-the-art operating room brings innovative care to patients

Stroke surgery, when performed right away and with the best equipment, can save lives. That’s why Toronto Western Hospital created two cutting-edge operating rooms that allow interventional neuroradiologists - medical imaging specialists who also do surgery on the brain - to have some of the best outcomes in removing artery-blocking brain clots that cause ischemic strokes, relieve pressure in brain-bleeding hemorrhagic strokes and do other brain-related interventions. Step inside one of the two state-of-the-art stroke operating rooms (ORs) at the hospital to see how equipment and medical staff can change stroke outcomes.​
