Harry's Success - a Patient Victory Story from Providence Brain and Spine Institute

Tune in for regular updates in our series of uplifting stories about patients who received great care and had great outcomes.  We are proud to help them get back to what's possible!

Watch KOIN TV's story about Harry, a cab driver in the Portland area, who called dispatch for help when his vision altered suddenly.  Two things were working in Harry's favor that night.  First, the dispatcher knew that vision changes and slurred speech were signs of stroke and dialed 911 immediately.  Second, the Providence Telestroke team jumped into action, treating Harry with a clot-busting drug that helped him recover more quickly and fully.
