Minimally Invasive Brain Repair, Stem Cell Transplantation, Physical Therapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
In 2016 , little Mila’s was premature delivery due to oligoamnios, a deficiency of amniotic fluid in the uterus. This fluid bathes the fetus in the uterus and is necessary for its proper growth and development. She was also diagnose with microcephalus, a neurological condition in which the infant’s head is smaller than normal and suffered from a delay in her brain development and daily seizures. She was admitted to Beijing Puhua International Hospital (BPIH) as the convulsion of her 4 limbs was poorly controlled by oral solution of sodium valproate and levetiracetam, which were prescribed for her at the local hospital.
Mila was first admitted in May 2016 and after the first month of treatment Mila’s parents started to notice some improvements. Five month later, we received an email from Mila’s mother:
She said: I can say that her general condition has improved.
The communication is better, she pays more attention on the surrounding and laughs more. Her vision is also a little better than before.
Her body is a lot stronger, she is still not sitting however she is more stable in that position than ever before. Her hands are more relaxed and when I bring a toy closer to her hand, she wants to grab it. She also has a better control of her head.
About the seizures. As I wrote you at the beginning, 2-3 months after the operation her condition became worse (she had seizures 2 to 3 times a week). However in the last 2 months her condition has improved a lot. She has now been seizure free for a whole month!
Mila’s family are very excited to see these improvements. In December 2018, 7 month after the first cycle of the treatment, Mila returned to BPIH for further treatment.
Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery for Cerebral Palsy
After admission, several medical protocols were applied, which included stereotactic treatment to her brain, to repair injured neural cells, medical treatment to improve her cerebral blood-supply and metabolism (this aids neural function and rehabilitation), a Traditional Chinese Medicine Protocol as well as Physical Rehabilitation Therapy and other supportive Therapies.

Medical Condition after Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery for Cerebral Palsy
Following the surgery, Mila’s condition greatly improved. Her motor skill have improved, her emotional state is now visible to per parents and Mila’s response to an external stimuli is very noticeably present.
Mila’s family are very satisfied with the treatment and results she has archived at BPIH.
