Abstract

Spinal Cord Regeneration: It’s a Matter of Time to Find the Solution

It’s estimated that more than 15,000 people suffer from spinal cord injury each year in Indonesia, and most of them will die because of the complication. The treatment and rehabilitation for them require lots of fund and in countries like Indonesia will be a huge burden for the family. There is very limited access to a good rehabilitation facilities or appropriate hospital care for spinal cord injuries; this also contributes to a high mortality rate especially after the cervical cord injury. We believe that more than one third of the world population is still facing the same situation like in Indonesia.
