Shriners Hospitals for Children
PEDIATRIC SPINAL CORD INJURY
Caused by trauma or disease, spinal cord injury (SCI) often results in complete or partial paralysis (the loss of voluntary movement and sensation) of one or more body parts, and a complete or partial disruption of involuntary actions such as breathing, bladder and bowel control and body temperature regulation.
In children, whose bodies are not yet fully developed, these injuries are further complicated by challenges to the skeletal structure causing severe scoliosis, hip displacement and muscle contractures.
Because this group of children present as a small population within the SCI community – resources, guidance and expertise in their treatment and care – have been limited.
Today, here in the US and across the globe, Shriners Hospitals for Children brings the best of the best in available medical care to kids with SCI. Cutting edge research and world renowned surgeons, combined with no cost care, bring hope and opportunity to this unique group of pediatric patients. XBS is committed to the Greenville Shriners Hospital for Children.
