We are pleased to announce that CTV news interviewed Dr. Jai Shankar on new research and development on EVT practices at the QEII.  

Many patients experience a variety of impairments after a stroke, such as speech and language difficulty, weakness on one side of their body, and mobility issues. Endovascular treatment helps improves their outcome after a stroke.

Dr. Shankar performed the first EVT procedure in Halifax in 2011. Four procedures a year has now increased to 40 in the last year.  

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Shankar. If you missed the segment on House Calls, we have the link below.
