A leading national stroke center in metro Detroit

The Comprehensive Stroke Division of Wayne State University Physician Group is one of the leading stroke programs in the United States. 

We continue to serve as a regional leader in clinical research seeking to identify the optimal treatment modalities for patients with acute stroke and treatment strategies for stroke prevention.

Outpatient and inpatient stroke clinics at WSUPG

More than 1,000 patients with stroke are seen each year in the outpatient vascular neurology clinic and more than 400 per year are seen as inpatients. Our outpatient clinic serves as a referral center for patients from all parts of Michigan.

Stroke research and stroke prevention 

In research, we attempt to identify African-Americans at increased risk for stroke as well as efforts to improve the quality of stroke care in Michigan and nationally. 

Current areas of research include investigation to prevent stroke. A novel medication is also being tested to promote motor recovery from a recent stroke.
