Houston Methodist Hospital Sugar Land offers a full range of neurological expertise and services to Fort Bend and surrounding counties for the treatment of stroke . Because time is critical when treating stroke, we are committed to providing aggressive, proven stroke care and addressing the important element of time. We coordinate with emergency services so that patients can be brought to Houston Methodist Sugar Land for quicker access to our talented team of neurologists.

Our comprehensive system for rapid diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients admitted to the emergency department includes always being equipped to provide brain imaging scans, having neurologists available to conduct patient evaluations and using clot-busting medications when appropriate.
