Factors Influencing Outcomes of Neurologic Deficits Due to Spinal Diseases
This study is designed to evaluate those factors that may facilitate the recovery of those patients who suffer from motor weakness or sensory deficits due to pathology in the spinal cord.
Predictive Outcomes using Diffusion Tensor Imaging in Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy
The purpose of this study is to determine the role of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) in the diagnosis and treatment of cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM). We are looking to enroll 30 patients undergoing cervical spinal surgery with CSM and 30 patients undergoing cervical...
A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Controlled Study of EXPAREL for Postsurgical Pain Management in Subjects Undergoing Open Lumbar Spinal Fusion Surgery
The purpose of this study is to see how safe and effective the addition of a drug called EXPAREL is in pain relief during open lumbar spinal fusion surgery compared to the usual pain treatment (bupivacaine HCL). Approximately 194 subjects will be asked to take part in this stu...

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
