IBERIABANK, a 127-year-old subsidiary of IBERIABANK Corporation, and Physicians Regional Healthcare System continue the Health Plus Lecture Series with the life-saving topic of “Brain Attacks” on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 at the Marco Island branch ofIBERIABANK at 605 Bald Eagle Drive. A welcome reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. with the presentation starting at 6:00 p.m.
According to the National Stroke Association, stroke is the nation’s third leading cause of death with more than 750,000 Americans experiencing a new or recurrent stroke each year. A stroke or “brain attack” occurs when a blood clot blocks blood flow in an artery, or when a blood vessel breaks which can interrupt blood flow to the brain. When this happens, brain cells begin to die. Neurosurgeons, Dr. Eric Eskioglu and Dr. Brian Mason, will present many facts about brain attacks, as well as the latest life-saving technology and innovative treatment options for acute stroke, brain aneurysms and other brain and carotid artery diseases.
Dr. Eskioglu, is a vascular and endovascular neurosurgeon who serves as the medical director of the Neurovascular and Stroke Institute at Physicians Regional. Dr. Mason, is a neuro-interventional radiologist and endovascular surgeon. He is the medical director of neuroendovascular surgery and interventional neuroradiology at Physicians Regional. These specialists are among a select number of surgeons nationwide who are specifically trained and highly experienced in both minimally invasive and traditional cerebrovascular surgery. Physicians Regional-Pine Ridge is the first and most tenured Comprehensive Stroke Center between Sarasota and Miami, and Physicians Regional-Collier Boulevard holds a Primary Stroke designation.
