Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Program
Specialized SCI Rehabilitation and Treatment
As a national leader in spinal cord injury care and research, Shepherd Center examines ways to improve the quality of life for people who have experienced a spinal cord injury (SCI). Our comprehensive rehabilitation program is tailored to meet individual needs to optimize recovery and improve independence in patients despite their level of injury.
Our clinicians specialize in spinal cord injury and treat a high volume of patients – about 400 each year. As a result, we have more experience dealing with all levels of spinal cord injuries, including those in people who are ventilator dependent or have a dual diagnosis of spinal cord and brain injury.

U.S. News & World Report ranks Shepherd Center among the top 10 rehabilitation hospitals in the country, and we are one of only 14 facilities in the United States designated as a Spinal Cord Injury Model System by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).
