A negligent car driver hit Andrew’s motorbike in May 2015 leaving Andrew paralyzed from the chest down.
Two metal rods were inserted into his spine and within three days of his accident Andrew was told he was unlikely to ever walk again. He refused to accept this conclusion even before learning about epidural stimulation treatment. Remaining incredibly positive, and being both mentally and physically fit, have helped him get great results following the Epidural Stimulation procedure.
Andrew’s initial results were excellent. Like all previous patients, he gained control of his legs after just a few days and his exceptional fitness is helping the rehabilitation process.
However, the ongoing progress that Andrew has made since his treatment has been even more remarkable. Always setting new goals for himself, Andrew is now at a stage where he can walk again, with very little assistance.
