Rehabilitative neurosurgery is a subspecialty that involves specialized surgeries on patients with traumatic spinal cord injury. These surgeries offer treatment for syringomyelia, post-traumatic tethered spinal cord, syrinx, cyst, pain and spasticity. Craig Hospital initiated its rehabilitative neurosurgery program in the late 1970s, and is an international referral center for the neurosurgical treatment of posttraumatic syringomyelia and tethered spinal cords. More than 1,000 cases of posttraumatic syringomyelia, posttraumatic tethered cords and syrinxs have been treated neurosurgically at Craig Hospital.
