Sept. 13, 2017 | Krishna Nalleballe, M.D., has joined the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) as a stroke neurologist, providing comprehensive stroke care from the initial emergency contact to outpatient recovery care.

In addition, Nalleballe will serve as a consulting neurologist with the Arkansas Stroke Assistance through Virtual Emergency Support(AR SAVES) network, which is hosted at UAMS. In this role, Nalleballe will assist doctors across the state via two-way video as they make potentially life-altering treatment decisions in the first few hours after a stroke. He will also serve as an assistant professor in the Department of Neurology in the College of Medicine, conducting research and training future neurology doctors.

“Dr. Nalleballe is joining a team of talented health professionals who work together to provide the best in complete stroke care,” said Robert L. “Lee” Archer, M.D., professor and chairman of the Department of Neurology. “Whether he’s working with neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons here at UAMS after determining that a stroke patient needs surgery, or working with an AR SAVES partner hospital to assess a patient many miles away from Little Rock, his expertise is invaluable.”
