The Spinal Column Surgical Outcomes Laboratory
The Spinal Column Surgical Outcomes Laboratory aims to improve the neurological outcomes and functional capacity of patients undergoing spinal surgery.
The Surgical Outcomes Laboratory collects large-scale retrospective patient databases and prospective patient registries to report high-quality data relating to the outcomes of neurosurgical operations. The laboratory participates in the National Neurosurgical Quality and Outcomes Database (N2QOD). This multi-institutional collaboration has set forth a 3-year prospective study to benchmark quality and surgical outcome measures across several academic institutions.
The Spinal Column Surgical Outcomes Laboratory specializes in:
- Biostatistical analysis of large-scale clinical databases
- Studying the outcomes of traditional and novel spinal procedures
- Quality control and cost-effectiveness research
- Clinical trials relating to spinal surgery outcomes
