Stanford Spine Outcomes Lab
Welcome to the Stanford Spine Outcomes Lab
At present, we are working on a prospective measure to assess the risk of complications in spine surgery procedures and determining outcomes from administrative datasets.
We are studying the impact of patient disease process, choice of operative approach, and patient pre-operative comorbidities on complication occurrence. The goal of this effort will be to develop a clinical tool that may be used in patient counseling.
Our longer term research goals are to develop clearer means of assessing outcomes in spine surgery procedures and developing patient-centered outcomes assessments that may be scalable for larger populations. We hope to be able to leverage insights from big data investigations into improving the care we provide for our patients.
