Graham Creasey, M.D.
Dr. Creasey specialized in surgery in Britain and has subspecialized in spinal cord injuries since 1980. He moved to the US in 1990 to carry out further research on control of the paralyzed bladder using implanted electrical stimulators in the VA Center of Excellence for Functional Electrical Stimulation and was Medical Director of the VA Advanced Platform Technology Center in Cleveland, Ohio. While serving as an attending physician in spinal cord injury he was Principal Investigator of a multi-center clinical trial that resulted in FDA approval of an implanted stimulator for restoring bladder and bowel function after spinal cord injury.
