Beyond 2020: Envisioning Future Treatment of Spinal Column and Cord Injury

Off-Campus -

3rd Annual Spinal Column and Cord Symposium

Jointly Provided by Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and Shirley Ryan AbilityLab.

Spinal column and spinal cord injury (SCI) have a devastating impact on the lives of patients. Often affecting a predominantly male demographic between the ages of 25-35, damage to these processes affect those in the prime of their life. In the United States, the annual incidence of spinal cord injury is 40-50 cases per 1,000,000 resulting in 17,000 new cases per year. The healthcare costs associated with this group is not insignificant; estimates range from $350,000 to $1,065,000 for the first year following injury and from $40,000 to $185,000 for each subsequent year. Surgical treatments for spinal column injury offer the potential to reduce these costs.

Advances in the medical and surgical treatment of those with spinal column and cord injury have been made; it is anticipated that evolving treatments will allow for optimization of neural recovery and function. Join national and international experts in the fields of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Orthopedic Surgery, and Neurosurgery as we explore current and future direction in the treatment of these devastating diseases. The educational gap will be addressed by demonstrating latest paradigms and interventions for traumatic injuries of the spinal column and cord and the value afforded by medical treatment and surgical intervention.

The topics chosen for this course are based on needs assessment from previous national meetings and review of current literature. At national, local, and institutional levels, there is recognition that spinal column and cord injury are a devastating occurrence; medical and surgical advances offer the possibility of neural recovery. A multidisciplinary approach, spanning from the bedside to the operating room, from the laboratory to the rehabilitation hospital provides cutting edge care in 2020 and beyond.
