Stroke Web Links
Many of the comments related to these pages have been from people requesting information about stroke. While we endeavor to answer every such inquiry, the volume involved often makes this impossible. As a result, this Stroke Links page was conceived. Here you will find links to stroke-related pages throughout the Web, offering useful information about symptoms, diagnosis, medical and surgical therapies, rehabilitation, and support groups. There is also a list of university-based Stroke Centers which often offer additional information. People in health-related professions may also find these pages useful, particularly for patient education. Note that the information listed here is not meant to be a substitute for medical consultation. Also, while we make every effort to screen these sites, we are not responsible for their accuracy.
