Dr. Edward Abraham Physician

I’m Dr. Edward Abraham, Orthopedic Surgeon at the Saint John Regional Hospital. You can imagine the costs and challenges that back issues cause in our society. There's lost time at work, expenses for our healthcare system, and increase narcotics use. Our work at Canada East Spine focuses on improving spine care for everyone, and we do this through research and clinical trials.

There is very little government funding for research. Most of our costs are covered by individuals who believe in the value of research and can see the positive impacts on patients. This is why your support is so important to us. With your support, we’re finding solutions and improving outcomes.

Dale Parkhill Patient

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.

Dr. Neil Manson Physician

I’m Dr. Neil Manson, an Orthopedic Surgeon at the Saint John Regional Hospital. I am also a founding member of the Canada East Spine Centre. 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.
