  1. Dear Professor,

    Greetings to your initiative to start a blog related to Brain and Spine. I think that neurosciences deserve an effort concerning up-to-date knowledge in relation to everyday practice. When this effort is achieved through the academic community then one result is for sure. Success!
    I wish you the very best in this difficult task.

  2. Hi, my son had a near drowning on the 9th of April 2006. Samuels brain injury caused his spine to twist and turn with severe scoliosis which crushed 1 lung and was then damaging other major organs. Because of all the dystonia, Samuel was given an intratheical baclofen pump and then soon after he had his spine rodded and fused but not fully straight as he is very osteopaenic so he gets bisphosphonates to strengthen his bones. Even through hypoxia I think there is a huge link between the brain and the spine even though others say its muscular and the brain. My son will be 7 in August 2010. Since his brain injury I have been so aware of how important that organ is and that so many people take it for granted.
    Samuels spinal xrays are very impressive, if you would like me to send you copies please let me know.

  3. i came by from yahoo, this is a great site i will be coming often.
    i’m called Cynthia Clark , currently live in the city of Clinton .glad to know you all here.

  4. I am suffering back pain right now but i haven’t undergone any check up yet but i’m hoping that it is not really a serious problem on my spine. anyway i do appreciate this site thank you.

  5. If you have problems with your back, the best thing to do is to go to a specialist who knows exactly what he is doing. Although Orthopedic doctors have the know-how when it comes to these types of surgeries, an expert who focuses on the spine and spine surgery is still your best bet.

  6. عزيزي د.محمد أرجو توضيح الفرق بين جراحة التداخل المحدود والجراحة الملاحية للعمود الفقري ؟؟

  8. الدكتور الفاضل / محمد محي الدين
    كل التحيه لك على عظيم ما تقدمه للانسانيه
    أعرض حالتي عليك لعل وعسى أجد الأمل بعد الله عندك
    أنا امره ابلغ من العمر 28 سنه كنت اشعر في بداية المرض بألم في الاقدام وبعدين اشتد الالم للضهر وبعد عدة فحوصات واشعات تبين أنه ورم في العمود الفقري فقرروا لي إجراء عمليه لإنتزاع هذا الورم لكن بعد العمليه فقدت الاحساس بالاطراف السفليه ولا استطيع تحريكها تماماً
    فلما سألت الدكتور ما السبب اعترف لي انه حدث خطأ اثناء العمليه وتم تحريك الحبل الشوكي مما ادى الى شلل في الاطراف السفليه
    أتمنى أن أجد عندك إجابه لحالتي وهل هناك أمل بالعلاج
    مع العلم أني من الجمهوريه اليمنيه
    وأجد صعوبه في السفر قبل أن أتأكد من إمكانية العلاج لمثل حالتي
    كتبها نيابةً عن صاحب الحاله
    أخوها /
