Sviatoslav’s injury represents one of the most difficult cases taken on by the project “Bioengineering Rehabilitation For Wounded” .
The task is to restore almost all the shoulder joint – bone, cartilage, muscle and blood vessels on the Donbass Batallion volunteer. Doctors are hopeful for maximum return of hand function, despite the complexity of the treatment. It will be worthwhile compared to the alternatives – an artificial shoulder joint or humerus arthroplasty, which were previously proposed to the soldier by conventional medicine medicine.
Despite the high cost of stem cell technology the 512,774 UAH needed to fund Sviatoslav’s treatment was collected quickly. However, due to delays with the supply of rare materials iLaya Medical Center had to postpone the fighter’s treatment.
However, his first operation is scheduled to take place today.
