Dr. Najmedden Attabib Neurosurgeon

I’m Dr. Najmedden Attabib, Neurosurgeon Surgeon at the Saint John Regional Hospital. As I’m sure you can imagine, research is key to healing what’s hurting in our healthcare system. And yet, there is very little government funding for research — even though it’s proven to improve patient outcomes. We need your help to continue the vital research here at Canada East Spine Centre. Your support leads to direct improvements in patient care and efficiencies for our healthcare system. And that means better outcomes for you, your family, and your loved ones.

I’m Dale and because of my back issues, I felt like I was missing out on the things I loved. I was eager to get my life back. The day I got to see Dr. Manson and he diagnosed the bulging disc in my spine, I was so grateful, finally I had some answers.

So, when Canada East Spine Centre asked if I would participate in the Prehabilitation (Prehab) research study, I was happy to help. I couldn't walk more than ten minutes before surgery, and now I can hike 3-kilometre trails with our children and grandchildren. If you can, I hope you'll consider supporting Canada East Spine Centre's critical research.

Our work at Canada East Spine focuses on improving spine care for all New Brunswickers. The goal is to better understand all the factors that impact spinal conditions, find the best ways to treat these complex problems and improve patient outcomes. Thanks to donor generosity we can do that through clinical research, and reduce the costs and challenges that back issues cause in our society.
