He is back for additional surgery. A young man who is being treated as part of the “Biotech” initiative has had another surgery, to improve his state of his affairs. Vitaliy came aboard the project with a shattered shin, through this complex fracture a twisted foot and shortening of his leg.
You see, the position of the foot? To correct this, work must be done on the tendons
Vitaliy was injured in the Battle of Savur-Mohyla in the summer of 2014 – The tank Vitaliy was travelling in came under strong fire and fell from the road bridge. He received serious injuries to his legs and abdomen. Eighteen months after the injuries he spent in public hospitals – they saved his life and healed the wounds to his abdomen. But the same did not happen with his leg, despite five major operations the bones fused in the wrong position, Vitaliy could barely walk even with crutches. That is why as part of Vitaliy’s treatment in the project meant re-breaking the bone, move it to the right position and regrow it using cellular technology.
Vitaliy spent a long time with an Ilizarov apparatus fitted, but now is almost free to walk on his own two feet
Now the project experts are treating the the tendons and tissues of the foot – it should improve its shape and condition, so he will be able to walk without any difficulty. After some time with his feet stretched with corrective pins, Vitaliy will start the next stage of rehabilitation. After that he will have all possibility of walking correctly and freely.
Surgery has already been completed. In a few days he will return home to recover after this intervention
All treatment costs for Vitaliy were taken care of by the volunteers of The People’s Project. Only recently we paid for the last of Vitaliy’s accounts and the full cost of treatment was 350,000. All the money we collect comes courtesy of people’s donations – contributions from ordinary people and individual philanthropists who contribute larger amounts. The Ukrainian State is not involved in the recovery of wounded soldiers, so these costs fall on our shoulders with your help. The Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded Project is continually accepting wounded soldiers so your contributions to the project are extremely important.
