Spinal cord injuries almost invariably change lives. Our staff at Mount Sinai believes life can still be fulfilling and enjoyable, regardless of the severity of the injury.
Spinal cord injury treatment and rehabilitation at Mount Sinai focuses on aggressively working with patients physically and psychologically, to help patients quickly maximize their neurological recovery. Our clinicians and physicians educate SCI patients about all aspects of their injury and care. We want patients to return home as independent and productive as possible, prepared to resume their lives.
If you are currently in a trauma center, your doctor, case manager, or discharge planner will talk to you about the next step once you are stabilized. Mount Sinai may be a rehabilitation option for you, depending on the severity of your injury, your current condition, and your insurance plan's specifications.
