Dr. Kou's specialty is spinal cord injury rehabilitation treatment - after surgical intervention has been exhausted. She is a wonderful listener, highly trained for this difficult PT challenge that we with SCI face each day. Also modifying some of my medications and exploring the benefits of Botox injections to help alleviate the spasticity issues in my legs.

Dr Kou takes time to listen to me. She is very friendly. Actually knows how to smile unlike most doctors I see. I believe her treatment plan to help relieve my pain for even short periods of time is welcome relief from 24hr/pain.

External Professional Relationships
Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
