13 Apr Epidural Stimulation Fuels a T7 Spinal Cord Injury from Nepal with Optimism
Who knew that Shantanu Sharma’s life would change dramatically at only the age of 22. This young man from Nepal got into a tragic accident that fractured his Spinal Cord leaving him with a T7 Spinal Cord Injury.
An injury at the Thoracic vertebrae 7 region, which is located in the middle of the spinal cord, usually results in a complete loss of voluntary movement of the muscles in the lower limbs, with movements in the arms retained as normal. Also, as a result of the injury, Shantanu has lost control over his bladder and bowel movement. The unpredictable change is enough for him to depend on other people to perform daily activities.
Despite all of this, Shantanu’s determination to get back on his feet again remains strong. It led him to discover the Epidural Stimulation Procedure, which is a breakthrough surgical implant of an Epidural Stimulation device that has helped all Spinal Cord Injury patients regain voluntary movements in the areas otherwise deemed immovable. In combination with this, Shantanu has also received Regenerative Treatment to repair the damaged area in his spinal cord.
Following the Epidural Stimulation, Shantanu is fueled with optimism and excitement for the future as he sets out to undergo extensive sessions of Rehabilitation. This young man has also set a realistic goal to be able to stand up with assistance on the parallel bars. He will be aiming to achieve this throughout his stay here in Bangkok.
“Now I’ll be open to a whole new world of possibilities,” Shantanu said in the interview.
