The South Florida Spinal Cord Injury Model System

The University of Miami and Jackson Memorial Hospital together serve as the home for the South Florida Spinal Cord Injury Model Systems (SFSCIMS). The SFSCIMS provides a comprehensive system of care to the patients from the time of injury through reintegration into the community. The SFSCIMS is one of only 14 US sites to receive the model systems designation by the National Institute of Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR). NIDILRR awards SCI Model Systems Center grants to institutions that are national leaders in medical research and patient care and provide the highest level of comprehensive specialty services, from the point of injury through rehabilitation and re-entry into full community life. Each SCI Model Systems Center contributes to the SCI Model Systems Data Center, which is the world’s largest and longest spinal cord injury research database. The SCI Model Systems centers also participate in independent and collaborative research, and provide information and resources to individuals with SCI, their family and care givers, health care professionals and the general public.

 

Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at the U Miami Miller School of Medicine

The Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) was founded in 2002 and is moving to the Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center for the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis in February 2020.  Physical Medicine is the non-surgical prevention, diagnosis and treatment of muscle, nerve and bone pathology using modalities, equipment and exercise to optimize function and minimize pain.  Rehabilitation involves the restoration of function and life quality lost through injury or disease, with special emphasis on community reintegration.  Our inpatient rehabilitation facilities include Comprehensive, Spinal Cord Injury, Traumatic Brain Injury, Stroke, Complex Care and Pediatric Rehabilitation services that serve the University of Miami and Jackson Health Systems.  Our diverse faculty participates in research protocols sponsored by NIH, NIDILRR, DOD and VHA, while our Residency Program includes 24  PM&R advanced training positions, as well as ACGME-accredited Spinal Cord injury and Brain Injury Fellowship positions. Several faculty members in the Department of PM&R also serve at the Miami VAMC in both PM&R and SCI&D services.

 

The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine

The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, a Center of Excellence at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, is considered the premier investigative research program conducting cutting edge discovery, translational, and clinical investigations targeting spinal cord and brain injuries.  The Miami Project’s international team includes more than 200 scientists, researchers, clinicians, and support staff who take innovative approaches to the challenges of spinal cord and brain injuries.

The Miami Project’s clinical trial program currently includes autologous Schwann cell transplantation, therapeutic hypothermia, Riluzole, deep brain stimulation, and brain machine interface.  Our discovery program is investigating immune modulation, scar formation, and regeneration mechanisms after injury to better enable development of future interventions.  In 1985, Barth A. Green, M.D. and NFL Hall of Fame linebacker Nick Buoniconti helped found The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis after Nick’s son, Marc, sustained a spinal cord injury during a college football game.  Since then research at The Miami Project has changed the landscape of knowledge and therapeutic strategies for spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury.

 

Jackson Memorial Medical Center

Jackson Memorial Hospital is the primary teaching hospital for the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine. Since 1952, the Public Health Trust has had a basic affiliation agreement with the medical school, supplemented by an annual operating agreement, which sets forth the responsibilities of and the services to be provided by each party. Of the nearly 1,000 full-time faculty members of the medical school, more than 600 are doctors engaged in clinical practice who have been granted medical staff privileges and can admit patients to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

While Jackson Memorial and the University of Miami operate as independent institutions, many of the services and programs offered at the hospital and medical school have become closely integrated. This relationship has enabled Jackson Memorial Hospital to develop as a major tertiary care center, benefiting both the community and the region it serves.

 

Miami VA Healthcare System

The Miami VA Healthcare System serves Veterans in three South Florida counties:  Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe, with an estimated Veteran population of 149,704. Our parent facility, opened in 1968, is the Bruce W. Carter Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center that is located on 26.3 acres in downtown Miami.

The Miami VA Healthcare System is an accredited comprehensive medical provider, providing general medical, surgical, inpatient and outpatient mental health services. The Miami VA Healthcare System includes an AIDS/HIV center, a prosthetic treatment center, spinal cord injury rehabilitative center, and Geriatric Research, Education, and Clinical Center (GRECC). The Miami VA Healthcare System is recognized as a Center of Excellence in Spinal Cord Injury Research, Substance Abuse Treatment and is a recognized Chest Pain Center.
