In this comprehensive, clinically directed, reference for the diagnosis and treatment of persons with spinal cord injury and related disorders, editors of the two leading texts on spinal cord injury (SCI) medicine have joined together to develop the premier reference for professionals in the field. Spinal Cord Medicine, Third Edition combines the unique approaches of previous editions and draws on the expertise of both seasoned editors, along with experienced chapter authors, to bring together in one volume the most up-to-date medical, clinical, and rehabilitative knowledge in spinal cord injury management across the spectrum of care.

Containing 60 state-of-the-art chapters, the book is divided into sections covering introduction and assessment, acute injury management and surgical considerations, medical management, neurological and musculoskeletal care, rehabilitation, recent research advances, and system-based practice and special topics. New and expanded content focuses on the significant changes in the epidemiology of traumatic injury, the classification of SCI, and the latest medical treatments of multiple medical complications. In addition, chapters discuss new surgical considerations in acute and chronic SCI and the many advances in technology that impact rehabilitation and patients' overall quality of life.

With chapters authored by respected leaders in the field of spinal cord medicine, including those experienced in spinal cord injury medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation, neurology, neurosurgery, therapists, and researchers involved in spinal cord injury, this third edition goes beyond either of the prior volumes to combine the best of both and create a new unified reference that defines the current standard of care for the field of spinal cord medicine.
