Second Opinion

Spinal Cord Injury

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
This special edition of Second Opinion tells two personal stories of devastating spinal cord injuries. Each year, more than 11,000 Americans will experience a similar injury, often causing permanent disability or paralysis. Advances in research may someday make complete repair of spinal cord possible, but current treatments still allow many people to lead productive, independent lives. Dr. Brad Berk, the CEO of the University of Rochester Medical Center shares the story of the bicycle accident that left him in a wheelchair, and Charlie Durkee talks about his life after an accident paralyzed him.
