A Doctor With a Backbone

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 14, 2011) - Dr. Gowriharan Thaiyananthan, otherwise known as Dr. "Ty" (, is a highly sought after neurosurgeon specializing in complex, yet minimally invasive spine surgery and advanced research in spinal disorders. Currently, he is the director at The Brain and Spine Institute of California. Eileen Koch & Company has been retained by Dr. Ty to handle all of his public relations needs.

As an experienced researcher, Dr. Ty is at the forefront of pioneering new surgical techniques and instrumentation to treat degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis and scoliosis. He is working as the principal investigator on several research projects including: a multi-center blinded clinic trial on interspinous spacers for supplementation of Anterior Lumber Interbody Fusions, and a series of prospective trials on the use of bone marrow aspiration and mesenchymal stem cells on lumbar fusion surgeries.

In addition to his extensive research endeavors, Dr. Ty is one of the first doctors to use the regenerative powers of stem cells to treat illnesses of the spine. His stem cell therapies utilize the tissue matrix of natural chemical compounds, growth factors and viable cells to aide in the body's natural regenerative process. He specializes in using stem cells for disc regeneration, to restore vertebral compression fractures and reverse arthritic changes of the spine.

The doctor has been featured in numerous medical journals and video segments explaining his spinal cord stimulator implant surgery. Dr. Ty has also lent his expert advice on Peyton Manning's stem cell treatment and Brittany Murphy's rumored dysautonomia, a possible factor in her untimely death.

He has written numerous peer-reviewed articles and abstracts, and is an active member of several prestigious medical associations including The Neurological Surgeons and North American Society of Spine Surgery, Orange County Medical Association, and The Indian Medical Association.

Dr. Ty received his BS in Biomedical Engineering and BA in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Johns Hopkins University. After earning his MD from University of California San Francisco, the doctor completed his surgical internship and neurosurgery residency at Yale New Haven Hospital, where he was also named Chief Resident of Neurological Surgery. He finished his spine surgery fellowship at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's Institute for Spinal Disorders.
