Patients around the world come to see Ottawa spine surgeon

Abstract:
The tragedy of young lives altered forever by freak accidents or foolish mistakes drives Dr. Eve Tsai to find a cure for spinal cord injuries.

Tsai specializes in complex surgeries, such as removing spinal tumours and treating spinal cord injuries.

If she could get her hands on more research dollars, Tsai said she could bring more young researchers into the lab and get even closer to finding a cure.

In the meantime, Tsai has established a multidisciplinary research group focused on investigating stem cells, nanotechnology and tissue engineering for spinal-cord repair.

The group has developed tube-like structures to help stabilize damaged areas of the spinal cord and stimulate regeneration. Results in labratory models have been promising and, after further research, Tsai hopes to eventually test these tube structures in humans.
