Medical Condition after Spinal Cord Reconstruction Surgery and Neural Growth Factor Therapy for Spinal Cord Injury

While in hospital, Patient Alameni Asem.A.M cooperated well with the treatment and he also worked hard during the rehabilitation training. He responded well to the treatment from the first injection of neural growth factor. His sensation level improved, and moved from his umbilicus plane (before treatment) to his hip plane (after treatment). One morning after the first injection, he felt an erection. More and more improvements occurred day-by-day from the effect of the treatment for his spinal cord injury (SCI). After the second course of neurotropic factors injection, he felt pain in his foot when the nurse took out the IV needle from it. The third time, he was able to move his toes a little. He could even begin to lift up his feet lightly.

With spinal cord reconstruction treatment, Patient Alameni Asem.A.M regained sensation in his legs, and is now able to move his legs a little.

All are looking forward to seeing more improvements in the future with Patient Alameni Asem.A.M.
