Professor Stephen Sarfo, a Consultant Neurosurgeon at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), has reported a significant rise in stroke cases at the facility.

He disclosed that KATH admitted approximately one thousand individuals with stroke-related conditions last year alone. This represents a staggering 500% increase compared to figures from 40 years ago in 1980.

However, Professor Sarfo noted that KATH has since equipped itself with trained specialists, radiologists, neurologists, and other essential medical personnel to provide better care for patients. He revealed that around 52% of these cases involve women.

In an interview with the media, Professor Sarfo urged the younger population to be cautious about their dietary habits, advocating for healthier eating choices and regular exercise.

Additionally, while discussing a new technology for stroke treatment, he emphasized the importance of individuals with risk factors such as diabetes and hypertension seeking regular medical attention to mitigate the chances of stroke occurrence.
