Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded

Finally home: treatment of wounded soldier is over

Finally home: treatment of wounded soldier is over

The iLaya clinic has said farewell to another patient. Serhiy, 40, has completed several difficult stages of treatment as part of the project Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded»: fusion and reconstruction of complex fractures of the forearm, and surgery on the ankle joint. With Serhiy’s Ilizarov apparatus fitted he has returned home to recover. Now he will only be in the clinic for certain brief times, for equipment inspection. All funds spent on treatment were collected by volunteers from The People’s Project as part of the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded initiative.

Before the war, Serhiy lived a quiet and peaceful life, a family man bringing up two daughters. Once the war began, Sergei was drafted to the army. He fought in the Luhansk region, and was wounded there in the summer of 2015 by enemy projectile explosion when terrorists fired at Ukrainian troops with a heavy ACS “Carnation”. Debris tore through his body: his hand was almost severed, and his leg was severely wounded. Serhiy lost a lot of blood, and is said to have survived only thanks to body armor.

In military hospitals he underwent five operations. At some point he was transferred to the Shalimov National Institute of Surgery and Transplantation. Despite the skill of doctors there, the complex fracture of the forearm began to coalesce improperly, rendering his hand almost useless. Doctors appealed for help to the project Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded , and the leading specialist from the iLaya Medical Company Volodymyr Oksymets happily assisted on request.

Volunteers of The People’s Project collected the necessary funds to pay for treatment, meanwhile, with Oksymtsya, Serhiy again had the bones broken and fitted with plates. Later, in the iLaya clinic, a control examination showed the operation was successful, and the bones fused correctly. To date, thanks to Serhiy’s efforts, movement of his hand and fingers have almost recovered. The final treatment at the site of injury was plastic reconstruction of muscles and skin.

In addition, surgery was conducted on the ankle. Unfortunately, the extent of the injuries left no other option than to rigidly fix the joint. This leg is at least operational and Serhiy is able to walk. When the Ilizarov apparatus is removed, Serhiy will exercise the leg and joint independently.

Although, in this case, we are not talking about the use of cellular technology, the treatment of the fighter would not have been possible without the project Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded. The project has collected the required amount of money for final operations and clinic doctors at iLaya used all their experience to cure Serhiy’s serious injuries. Unfortunately, other wounded Ukrainian fighters need this skilled care, only skilled doctors and modern technology can help them return to normal life. Get involved to help – without your donations, injured defenders have virtually no chance of recovery.
