    quote:

    Nockels also is the chief of Loyola’s division of neurological spinal disorder and director of the spinal cord injury repair laboratory.

    The department of neurological surgery is actively involved in research on complex neurological pathologies and its spinal cord injury repair lab is investigating novel treatments for repair of the injured spinal cord.

    Here is another one that I found, that is very similar. They take two metal pieces and insert them into the spinal fracture area, each piece is screwed to each vertebra individually. The two metal pieces have a ball bearing joint to allow the vertebra movement.
