Dr. Ross discusses the two main types of strokes—hemorrhagic and ischemic—and explains their symptoms and causes. He emphasises the importance of recognising stroke symptoms early, such as sudden speech problems or weakness, and seeking medical help immediately.

Additionally, Dr. Ross talks about ways to prevent strokes, including managing high blood pressure and diabetes. He also touches on advanced treatments like clot removal and how they can benefit stroke patients.
