Shantanu Sharma is a 22-year-old patient from Nepal whose life was changed when he suffered an accident that fractured his spinal cord. Shantanu was left with a T7 spinal cord injury, which resulted in the loss of voluntary movement in his lower limbs, as well as control over his bladder and bowel movement. Shantanu sought treatment to alleviate his condition and discovered epidural stimulation, offered by Verita Neuro. He decided to undergo the treatment, hoping that it would help to return his lost functions.
In the early weeks of his treatment, Shantanu was filled with hope, feeling the treatment will open up “a whole new world of possibilities.” The treatment enabled him to undertake physical activities he hadn’t done since his injury, 2 years before.
