Dr. Nicholas Theodore is the Director of the Johns Hopkins Neurosurgical Spine Center in Baltimore, Maryland. He gives a great lecture on many of the diseases and disorders of the spinal cord, giving particular attention to conditions that are either considered to be "new" or in which the thinking or understanding of the conditions have drastically changed in the recent past. "Chiari is a perfect example," he says. "When I was in residency, there were a couple of prevailing theories... but the reality is: most of that was wrong."
Watch Dr. Theodore explain how conditions like syringomyelia, tethered cord, spinal cord injury and more can cause spinal cord stretching and/or affect the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the central nervous system.
This lecture was given at the CSF Chapter meeting on April 11th in Baltimore, Maryland at Johns Hopkins University. (2018)Revised: 9/2019
