'Restoring bladder and bowel function by electrical stimulation after spinal cord injury'


Graham CreaseyProfessor Graham Creasey trained in medicine in Edinburgh, and since becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 1980 he has specialized in spinal cord injuries. He has been particularly interested in restoring function to paralyzed muscles by electrical stimulation of nerves. He introduced into North America the neural prosthesis developed by Professor Giles Brindley, the Director of the Medical Research Council’s Neurological Prostheses Unit, for restoring bladder, bowel and sexual function, and is now working with Professor Brindley and his colleagues on patterns of stimulation that may restore function without requiring the posterior sacral rhizotomy used in the past.





Chair: Professor Freddie Hamdy
