Transplant of nasal cavity cells to spinal cord enables this paralysed man to walk once again
Paralysis is perhaps the most debilitating medical conditions in which the patient is capable of hearing and understanding everything, but cannot move or walk. The frustration of not being able to do things on your own and having to depend on others for most basic work is something paralytic patients have to go through.
But the science of medicine has made such advancements that now it has become possible for paralytic patients to get up on their own will and walk and sit again. One such advancement was successful when a quadriplegic patient from Poland walked again due to a revolutionary surgery.
Here is the incredible story.
1 Darek Fidyka
Darek Fidyka, 40, from Poland, was paralyzed after being stabbed repeatedly in the back in the 2010 attack.
But now thanks to a revolutionary breakthrough in medicine, he is able to walk with a support of a frame. He said that “When you can’t feel almost half your body, you are helpless, but when it starts coming back it’s like you were born again.” He further added that,” what had been achieved was more impressive than man walking on the moon”.
