Continued on p. 2 Dr. Black helping create premier neuroscience center at Baylor Aheart transplant candidate was in the hospital at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas, waiting for her surgery, when she suffered a stroke. Surgeons from the Baylor Neuroscience Center inserted a coil into an artery in her brain, removing the clot. They followed up by treating her with a clot-dissolving agent. Within hours, she was talking and moving. And within days, she had a new heart. “There is no other place in the state that can perform these kinds of procedures,” Stuart Black, M.D., said at the December meeting of the Baylor Health Care System Foundation Board of Directors. Dr. Black, co-medical director of the Baylor Neuroscience Center and chief of neurology at Baylor Dallas, joined Baylor at the end of 2008. In the time since, he has been working to achieve a three-pronged vision: • To make the neuroscience center a highly specialized, comprehensive center whose components are nationally recognized. • To ensure that its quality of care is equal to the finest care offered at any other nationally recognized neuroscience center. • To position the neuroscience center as the premier center in the Southwest and achieve national prominence.
