Mayo Clinic specialists are internationally recognized as leaders in caring for people with spinal cord injuries. Unfortunately, there's no way to reverse damage to the spinal cord. But clinicians and researchers are continually working on new treatments, including prostheses and medications that may promote nerve cell regeneration or improve the function of the nerves that remain after a spinal cord injury.
Using a collaborative approach, researchers, clinicians and allied health staff from many disciplines work together to provide the best care and clinical trials for people with spinal cord injuries. Mayo Clinic's team includes specialists in:
- Biomedical engineering
- Neurologic surgery
- Physical medicine and rehabilitation
- Physical therapy
