Care and Treatment of Neurological Spine Disorders
Neurological Spine Disorders Research
Stanford's spine disorders physician-researchers are actively involved in leading-edge studies to better understand these conditions and to improve treatment options for patients. Current research topics of interest include:
Assessing the risk and likelihood of complications in spine surgery procedures and surgical technique options.
Studying the patient disease process and outcomes for these procedures.
Improving minimally invasive spinal surgery techniques and care for primary and metastatic spinal tumors via CyberKnife radiosurgery and surgical oncology.
Developing medical devices and leading-edge technology for treating spinal tumors and disorders.
Matt Ryan fractured his neck in multiple places in a bodysurfing accident. Spinal neurosurgeon Dr. Jon Park repaired the complicated break, saving him from paralysis.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
