Our expert today is Dr Jim Faed and the topic will be around spinal cords.

We're going to discuss typical injuries and the modern medicine - that is stem cells - being worked on to fix spine problems. Jim wears a number of hats: he's a senior lecturer at the University of Otago and he's the blood transfusion medicine specialist covering the southern region of New Zealand.
