Specializing in VAD

Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego has a Stroke rehabilitation program.

"They have state of the art instruments, like what astronauts use in order to regain midline balance ( which was a huge problem for me since I stroked near my balance center; the cerebellum)  For anyone with this type of stroke they should contact Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego, asking for the Rehab Center and for Wanda."
