Christian's Story

This past January, Christian Patrick Ehrhard suffered a major stroke while getting ready for work. He was rushed to UHS where Ramesh Grandhi, MD, performed a mechanical thrombectomy to remove the blood clot blocking the flow of blood to his brain and a hemicraniectomy to relieve intracranial pressure. After surgery, Christian was put under the supervision of the neurocritical care team.

Christian and his wife praised the staff for their support. “Dr. Grandhi did a fantastic job; we are very grateful to him. The doctors and staff in the ICU were friendly and always looked out for us, which put us at ease.”

Since his surgery, Christian has recovered much of his strength; he is able to do yard work and care for his young child. Christian’s family is very pleased with the results and happy to have him back at home.
