Dr. Michael Vassilyadi, Pediatric Neurosurgeon
After completing neurosurgery residency at the Montreal Neurological Hospital and pediatric neurosurgery fellowship at the Montreal Children’s Hospital, I joined the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Medicine in 1996 and started working at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario until my retirement from CHEO in November of 2018.
I continue to work at the University of Ottawa and TOH where I am an Associate Professor of Surgery and Pediatrics. I am a strong advocate for head and spine injury prevention; for over two decades I have been presenting at many schools and community organizations about “thinking first” and the importance of protecting one’s brain. I speak English, French, and Greek.

After Hours Access to Care

In case of emergency, always dial 911. THAS connects you to a nurse who can provide medical advice, or, if appropriate, provide access to a family health team doctor or suggest that you go to emergency.
Patients not registered with a family doctor at UOHS – Ontario residents
In case of emergency, always dial 911. Telehealth Ontario is a free service that allows Ontario residents to speak to a Registered Nurse with their medical questions any time of the day or night. This could be when you're sick or injured but aren't sure if you need to see a doctor or can treat the situation at home.
