Charlie is 12 years old now. He was born prematurely but was healthy. Nevertheless, owing to an infection, he suffered from brain hypoxia (not sufficient oxygen) that caused a central nervous system lesion. This resulted in the under-development of his brain and consequently he had trouble accomplishing the physical and mental milestones at the same rate as a healthy kid. He had control of all his limbs but couldn’t walk independently. His eyesight was frail and his speech was restricted. He attended a school for kids with special needs. A visit to the doctor confirmed that Charlie had Cerebral Palsy. We heard about stem cell therapy from a colleague and found it encouraging. Upon reading further and after lots of discussion, we decided to go for stem cell treatment in India.
We came here and were welcomed by a friendly staff at Stem Cell Care India. Charlie underwent umbilical cord extraction after which the treated stem cells were vaccinated into spine via lumbar puncture. Some cells were even given intravenously. After 8 weeks of the treatment monitored by rigorous physiotherapy, we perceived a remarkable improvement in his eyesight. Even his immune system improved fabulously. We went back for treatment after 6 months. This occasioned in an improvement in his intellectual aptitude and his movement showed radical improvement. His grasp became better and he can now string words together. We are very grateful for this treatment. It has upgraded the quality of life for Charlie and we hope he gets better as time passes by.
