My 14-month old daughter, Chloe, had a stroke within the last 7 days
and the neurologist found evidence of a small prior stroke on the
MRI. They suspect moyamoya. He suggests we go to a specialist for the
advanced testing and ultimate diagnosis and he recommends a doctor at
JohnHopkins, but it seems that the majority of references on this
site are to a Dr. Scott in Boston. We live in Florida, but will
travel anywhere for the best treatment. He put her on lovinox for
three weeks, then will go to aspirin for short term therapy to
prevent further strokesn until diagnosis and treatment. What is the
surgery everyone refers to on this site? We are scared and
devastated. She was paralyzed on the left side, which alerted us, but
is regaining movement every day.
