Stroke physical therapist finds himself in need after health scare

HOUSTON (November24, 2017)

Rudy Pijnnaken is a physical therapist who has worked with stroke patients for years. That's where he met Dr. Sunil Sheth, who is a neurologist at Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center and UTHealth.  The doctor discovered a tear in the blood vessel to Rudy's brain and a blood clot which was starving Rudy's brain of oxygen. He treated Rudy using a relatively new procedure in stroke care called a thrombectomy in order to remove the life-threatening clot.
