Odds of Stroke Increasing in Young People

Sacramento Bee talks with Dr. Lucian Maidan, Dignity Health's regional medical director of neurovascular medicine.

The Sacramento Bee’s Anita Creamer recently did a story on the rise of stroke among young people. Dr. Lucian Maidan (pictured left), Dignity Health’s regional director of neurovascular medicine, was interviewed for the story and commented that a 35-year-old can have the same risk factors as a 75-year-old based on an unhealthy lifestyle that includes diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and a lack of exercise.

Read the story in the January 5, 2015 issue of The Sacramento Bee.

For more information about Dr. Maidan or the Dignity Health Neurological Institute of Northern California, the regional leader in stroke care, treating the highest volume of neurovascular patients in the Greater Sacramento region, visit our Neurological Care pages.
