Stem Cell Therapy for Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury


Presented by Alicia Fuhrman, MD, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, University of Washington, on March 28, 2018 at the University of Washington Medical Center

In this presentation, Dr. Fuhrman explains the complex and rapidly expanding field of stem cell medicine. She begins by clarifying what stem cells are and how they are used in different treatments. She then summarizes what the research can tell us about how effective these treatments are for spinal cord injuries. Finally, she discusses how to recognize and avoid scams and how to decide about treatment for yourself or, if you are a health provider, how to counsel your patients.
