Dr. Faizal Kassam is an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in Orthopaedic Trauma and Spine. Before joining the Department of Surgery at Queen’s University and the KHSC, he completed his residency at Queen’s, followed by fellowships in Trauma (Queen’s) and Combined Neurosurgical & Orthopaedic Spine Surgery (University of Calgary).  He is a welcome enhancement to our Orthopaedic team.

Dr. Kassam had an opportunity to collaborate with the neurosurgical group at Queen’s to establish a pilot study assessing the role of a robotic exoskeleton (KINARM) to bring objectivity to assessments of neurologic dysfunction due to chronic spinal cord compression. He had support in Calgary to carry out similar robotic assessments to bring objectivity to assessment of cervical myelopathy and he hopes to continue this project with the eventual goal of robotics becoming a widely used adjunct to measure neurologic dysfunction.
