Clinical/Medical Enquiries

Please note: For legal and ethical reasons, we are unable to provide professional medical advice via electronic communication about the diagnosis, management, or prognosis of disease in specific individuals.

U.S. residents can consult the SCRC's list of American Organizations providing referral information on S.C.I. research and rehabilitation.

Canadians seeking treatment should forward their enquiries through their local health care providers.

Visitors are invited to browse through the SCRC's list of Spinal Cord Injury and other Disability Resources for answers to many common questions about S.C.I. and information on coping with disabilities. Questions about neurology, and treatment of other medical conditions, can also be submitted to the medical experts at

The Winnipeg Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience is a research group, not a treatment centre. While some of our members do conduct clinical research on spinal cord injured patients at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the WCSN is not itself involved in treatment of spinal cord injury. You may read more about the SCRC's completed and current clinical research projects in our Clinical Research pages.

Treatment for S.C.I. in Winnipeg is conducted by the HSC Rehabilitation Hospital's clinical SCI Unit. Manitoba patients seeking information on the SCI Unit's clinical research may contact the unit via Dr. Karen Ethans.

Research Enquiries

Before submitting questions on the research we conduct here, we ask you to browse through the web sites of our member groups, where you'll find links to pages describing our investigators' research. These research profiles will also list their recent publications, which you can look up at your nearest medical library for more in depth knowledge of their research. Many of these publications are now available on the web.

You can also search our web server for specific topics of interest by using the ht://Dig search engine on our site. As with most search engines, spelling matters, so if your queries don't turn up the results you're hoping for, and you're uncertain of the correct spelling of your keywords, you may want to look them up in a medical dictionary or English dictionary first.

For more details on the research of individual members, you may contact their department or group directly, or enquiries can be sent to
