Surgical Trauma and Spine
We care for people who have conditions affecting the spine and spinal cord, as well as other orthopedic ailments or injuries.
Rick Hansen Spinal Cord Injury Registry
In September 2006, the Hamilton General Hospital was the first site in the province to initiate the Rick Hansen Spinal Cord Injury Registry. Hamilton General Hospital is one of the top 5 sites within the country in terms of consent rate for the registry. In addition, it is the only Spinal Cord Centre in the province to have actively integrated SCI Navigators through the Canadian Paraplegic Association Ontario with our hospital Acute and Rehab Teams. We are currently participating in a number of multisite research studies involving both acute and rehabilitation spine services.
