Ivan, a fighter with the 24th mechanized brigade, is preparing to undergo major surgery. This will be third and main stage of his treatment. Ivan is being treated for consequences of a shrapnel wound to his leg – nonunion fractures (for 8 months) and scar-ulcerative defect of soft tissues.
During the previous stages of treatment Ivan underwent sampling of cellular material, dismantling of the external fixation apparatus, and plastic surgery on scar tissue.
We wish doctors luck and for the soldier to undergo a successful surgery!
