Biography :

Dr. Fehlings is the Medical Director of the Krembil Neuroscience Center and heads the Spinal Program at the Toronto Western Hospital. Dr. Fehlings is a Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of Toronto, holds the Halbert Chair in Neural Repair and Regeneration, a Scientist at the McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine, and a McLaughlin Scholar in Molecular Medicine.

In the fall of 2008, Dr. Fehlings was appointed the inaugural Director of the University of Toronto Neuroscience Program and Co-Director of the newly formed University of Toronto Spinal Program. In 2014, he was elected as a Fellow of both the Royal Society of Canada and the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences.

Dr. Fehlings combines an active clinical practice in complex spinal surgery with a translationally oriented research program focused on discovering novel treatments for spinal cord injury. This is reflected by the publication of over 300 peer-reviewed articles chiefly in the area of spinal cord injury and complex spinal surgery.

Dr. Fehlings leads a multi-disciplinary team of researchers, which is examining the application of stem cells, nanotechnology and tissue engineering for spinal cord repair and regeneration. He is also a principal investigator in the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation North American Clinical Trials Network, is co-chair of the internationally renowned Spine Trauma Study Group and leads several international clinical research efforts through AOSpine
