Video: Dr. Ida Fox | Podcast: Dr. David Magnuson

Last week we dropped another episode of our CureCast podcast with Dr. David Magnuson; we also posted a new video of Dr. Ida Fox from last year’s Working 2 Walk Symposium. Take a look below for more context and background on each of these individuals and their important work.

In “Improving Upper Extremity Function in Cervical SCI”, Dr. Ida Fox addresses issues around nerve transfer surgery — what are it’s possibilities, who is a good candidate and what is the critical information you need to know about this promising new procedure? Over the last five years, Dr. Fox has been doing these surgeries with a focus on developing criteria for clinical treatment. She shares what she has learned regarding clinical assessment, intraoperative technical details, postoperative recovery, therapy and longer term outcomes. Future directions for her research interests are also discussed in this talk. Be sure to watch the Question and Answer session afterward and then leave a comment or inquiry of your own below the video.
