HISTORY

Cesar suffered an accidental three-story fall, and ended up with a severe spinal cord injury. The CT scan taken at the local hospital showed significant fracture of vertebra T-11. Surgery was done and the fractured T-11 was fixed anatomically. In his hope to gain further improvement, Cesar decided to consider stem cell therapy for Spinal Cord Injury.

After receiving an encouraging evaluation, the patint decided to travel Brazil to Beijing for cellular therapy. He was admitted to Beijing Puhua International Hospital on Oct. 30th 2011.

Medical Condition before Stem Cell Treatment for Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Cesar was paraplegic: He couldn’t move his legs. He was confined to a wheelchair as he couldn’t stand or walk. This situation brought him a lot of inconvenience in daily life. As a proffessional (a dentist), he found it very hard for him to continue his professional work after his injury.

Cesar’s condition improved dramatically after the treatment.

During the rehabilitation exercise, he was trained to walk with the help of therapist. Before he was discharged, wearing orthotics, he managed to stand up and walk forward with his hands holding a walker. This was impossible before stem cell therapy, and will allow him to return to a relatively normal personal and professional life as a dentist in Brazil.
