Treatment of spine trauma and expediting the surgical treatment of patients experiencing spinal cord injury is also a major focus of his clinical practice.
From a research standpoint Dr. Glennie plans to focus on quality assurance for patients with spinal column trauma including those patients suffering from spinal cord injury. Also, evaluating health related quality of life of patients will be a major focus going forward for all elective patients.
The combined spine program at the Halifax Infirmary and Dalhousie University hope to create an expedited referral system serving patients with degenerative conditions of the spine.
