We have some news about some of the boys undergoing treatment under the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project. Three patients returned to the clinic the other day: one former and two present. Each of the guys, with full right, can be called extremely severely injured. For example Sasha – his course of treatment was completed more than a year ago. Now the guy came for a regular check-up to make sure everything is okay.
Sasha – how he was then and how he is now
And so, everything is okay. Just look at what he is capable of now. For some time now, we did not even know if we could save his leg. The bullet of an enemy sniper smashed the shin into fragments, so collecting it together, merging and restoring a significant bone defect through cellular technology lasting for a year. The volunteer is an active and efficient person due to the fact Oleksandr is fully back to a normal life. And all of this is due to the skill of the doctors at the ilaya clinic and the donations of ordinary people.
Roman is counting on similar results. There are all reasons to hope for this – for more than a year in the laboratory new fragments of bones were grown. The plan for Roman is to restore the entire shoulder joint, actually destroyed by an explosion. The other day he underwent the first preparatory operation – removing the external fixation device, revision of the wound and preparation of the defect site prior to the transplantation of all new fragments. We will keep you up-to-date.
Roman, Petro, and the third (unknown to us) soldier were all good fighters
The other day, Petro visited the clinic. He had only just seemed to have left, only to return – however the wound should be constantly kept under control. So far, the news is comforting: the result of operations is satisfactory, transplanted soft tissue scars have covered, bone structures are also ready for further treatment. We will start the second stage of treatment soon enough – with the use of cellular technology, we will restore the bone structure and the most damaged bones.
Petro stepped on a mine severely injuring his leg, which we will save from amputation
Now about the pragmatic side of the matter. The state does not take part in the treatment of these fighters. No matter what efforts were made by doctors of state and military hospitals, there are wounds that are not treatable by state medicine. But to finance the use of the latest technology that will allow the recovery of such patients, the heads of the Ministry of Health do not want the best for them – they will amputate rather than try to save what can be saved. That is how it stands, but the whole financial burden, as always, lies on our shoulders – we can only help these fighters via people’s donations. The treatment of Sasha and Roman has already been paid for, but Petro still needs our help. Help is also needed for new fighters Sergiy and Volodymyr. So every donations made to the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project gives these guys a chance to recover – do they not deserve this chance?
