A tragic car accident 8 years ago left Jeffrey Guest with a T7-T10 level spinal cord injury. The 29-year-old American remained determined and began a fundraising campaign to undergo the epidural stimulation surgery with Verita Neuro in Bangkok. With the support of his family and loving friends, Jeffrey was successful with fundraising and flew to Bangkok to undergo the surgery.
Following the surgery, Jeffrey commenced with a series of extensive training and rehabilitation sessions. After a few days, he experienced many improvements – he could move his ankles again after 8 years.
Jeffrey’s biggest inspiration for coming to Bangkok to receive the epidural stimulation procedure was his son. According to Jeffrey, his goal for this breakthrough epidural stimulation procedure was to stand up and he hoped to be able to move around without his wheelchair. Watch the video to see how he got on.
