On September 16, Roman, a wounded soldier from the 39th separate infantry battalion underwent surgery where stem cell engineered material in the form of bone chips were inserted in the area of his nonunion fractures and a metal osteosynthesis plate was affixed.
Roman feels fine and is preparing for discharge.
We wish Roman a quick recovery and await the results of the next X-ray results to be taken in 1.5 months.
Roman was enrolled in the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project in June this year with a fractured arm, which could not be healed by traditional means.
His first operation as part of the project was on July 16, when when cellular material was collected and his external fixation apparatus was removed.
Contributing to the funding of Roman’s treatment was Ukrainian rock group Druha Rika, with a donation of 100,000 UAH. The group plans to continue to support the project and encourage others to follow suit.
