This webinar is designed to update spine practitioners on the latest advancements in managing incomplete spinal cord injuries. It delves into leveraging machine learning algorithms to personalize patient care, identify predictors of outcomes, and determine the best treatment approaches for various patient demographics, including geriatric and frail patients. Attendees will gain insights into optimizing both surgical and conservative treatment strategies, with a focus on the timing of surgery for central cord syndrome and emerging evidence on its impact on recovery.

Additionally, the webinar will cover the evolving best practices for managing incomplete spinal cord injuries, including ideal MAP goals, steroid use, surgical approaches, and the role of duroplasty. Explore the potential of emerging technologies such as brain-computer interfaces and neuromodulation to enhance patient outcomes.

Stay at the forefront of spinal cord injury management by joining this informative webinar and equipping yourself with the knowledge to provide the best care for your patients.

What You Will Learn

Upon completion of this course, participants should gain strategies to:

Describe key patient factors that predict incomplete spinal cord injury outcomes;

Identify patients requiring surgery for incomplete spinal cord injuries and optimal timing of surgery;

Treatment considerations for incomplete spinal cord injury in the pre-, intra- and postoperative time period;

Identify the role of brain-computer interface and neuromodulation following incomplete spinal cord injury.


NASS courses are created to enhance physician understanding of the complexity of performing these procedures only. The course is not designed to certify that attendees are proficient in the procedures taught in the course. NASS strongly advises participants to continue to have proctoring, mentoring and additional experience prior to treating patients.
