Wade Smith, MD, PhD
Prof of Clinical Neurology
Dr. Smith is a neurologist with training in Neurocritical Care and Vascular Neurology. He cares for patients with acute stroke and subarachnoid hemorrhage among all neurovascular conditions. His research interests are in developing methods to rapidly triage stroke patients to appropriate immediate care using biometrics, endovascular stroke therapy and cerebral concussion. He studies the HeadPulse- minute movements produced by the heart beat on the head. Alterations in the HeadPulse provide diagnostic tools for stroke, brain injury and other neurological conditions.
