Types of Stroke

There are three basic types of strokes:

  • Ischemic
  • Hemorrhagic
  • Transient ischemic attack (TIA)

Each type of stroke can have different warning signs and symptoms, occur in different areas of the brain, and result in a different outcome. Roane Medical Center is accredited as an Advanced Primary Stroke Center, and can rapidly diagnose and initiate treatment for different types of strokes.
