This includes internationally recognised health care professionals including spinal surgeons, physiotherapists, sex therapists and more, who share one common goal- to help improve sexual function in a range of conditions related to the spine; through accessible online educational media, therapy advice and support & guidance.

The “Sex and The Spine” platform was launched to provide a portal for education and advice for both clinicians and patients. We position ourselves as the link between patients and experts, providing interdisciplinary treatment/guidance. The core multi-disciplinary team structuring this platform include spine surgeons Dr. med. Bronek Boszczyk (Germany) and Dr. Areena Dsouza (Germany), Clinical Sexologists Angela Gregory (United Kingdom) and Dr. Martha Lee (Singapore), Consultant Andrologist Mr. Amr Raheem (United Kingdom), Consultant Physiotherapist Eleanor Dunstan (United Kingdom), Psychosexual therapist for regional Spinal Cord Injury centres (United Kingdom), Michelle Donald and Clinical Psychologist Dr. Divya Parashar (India). We are fortunate to be able to draw on a pool of experts in their fields for specific topics.
In short, SATS is driven by a tremendously dedicated group of health care professionals bringing much needed informational content to persons suffering from sexual dysfunction arising from a range of spinal disorders. We hope to widen our outreach to all those who need these services.
