Kauvery Hospital, Radial Road, Launches Kauvery Integrated Stroke Centre – an Advanced and Comprehensive Centre for Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disorders


Stroke, or brain attack, is one of the common causes of disability and death in the world. It is not as uncommon as was previously thought. The World Stroke Organization says that 1 in 4 people will, at some point of time, suffer a stroke. It is, therefore, extremely important that we take cognizance of this highly prevalent problem and do what is necessary to help the society.

A stroke may either occur when the blood vessel to the brain is blocked (Acute Ischaemic Stroke) or when there is bleeding in the brain (Haemorrhagic Stroke). In both these instances, the symptoms are almost the same. It is imperative that the patient reaches a Stroke Centre as soon as possible because with current management protocols, it is possible to reduce or even reverse a stroke. Lives can be saved and disability reduced – but the patient must reach on time. This is because for every second lost, 30,000 brain cells die and for every minute lost, 2 million brain cells die.

The Institute of Brain and Spine at Kauvery Hospital, Radial Road, is happy to announce that within one year since we began treating patients at our hospital, it has been awarded the prestigious Gold Status by the WSO Angels Awards. The hospital, therefore, is ready to go to the next level and has now launched KISC – Kauvery Integrated Stroke Centre. This is an advanced and comprehensive centre for treating stroke and all cerebrovascular disorders under one roof.

“The key words are ‘Advanced’ and ‘Integrated’ – while there may be many Stroke Centres, few have all the different specialties involved working together, in a seamless fashion, in order to ensure that time is saved and the best is done for the patient. Starting from the ER to Radiology to Neurology and Neuro ICU, Neuro Intervention, Neuro OT and finally Neuro Rehabilitation, the Stroke Corridor of KISC ensures a smooth protocol-based management, which has now been acknowledged by the World Stroke Organization. At KISC, we have the technology, the experience and the expertise and, most importantly, the teamwork to achieve the best of results in stroke management,” said Dr Krish Sridhar, Group Mentor, Neurosciences, & Director, Institute of Brain & Spine.

“Every second makes a difference to stroke patients. When they are brought here within the golden hour – 60 minutes – from the onset of stroke symptoms or even within 24 hours, the team at Kauvery Integrated Stroke Centre work relentlessly to reverse stroke and provide optimal outcome for them. As an advanced Stroke Centre, we provide them the best possible chance through international standards of care and a seamless, cohesive and protocol-driven rapid response,” said Dr Anil BG, Medical Director at Kauvery Hospital, Radial Road.

Kauvery Hospital, Radial Road, is a leading healthcare institution offering advanced treatments and surgical interventions in neurology, cardiology, women and child wellness, gastroenterology, orthopaedics, joint reconstruction, urology, nephrology and other specialities.
