Restoring Bladder, Bowel and Sexual Function after Spinal Cord Injury

The Berkeley SCI support group will host Dr. Graham Creasey, Professor of Spinal Cord Injury Medicine Stanford University, on Thursday, Jan. 12th to talk about Restoring Bladder, Bowel and Sexual Function after SCI.

Dr. Creasey has been working in the field of spinal cord injury for over 35 years with a special interest in restoring bladder, bowel and sexual function. He introduced into North America a pacemaker developed in Britain that is capable of producing erection as well as emptying the bladder and bowel, reducing infection and the use of catheters by men and women with SCI.
