A young man who suffered a severe injury has undergone some experimental stem cell therapy that has resulted in an incredible recovery. With the therapy, the 21-year-old has regained some use in his arms and hands, a complete breakthrough from previous treatments that only stabilized the spine and never extended those improvements any further from the area affected.
What's also incredible is that these strides were made only two weeks following the patient's surgery. It's so promising that doctors are hoping that it will open doors for even more developments, like neurological healing. This patient can now write his name, feed himself, use his phone--all things that he couldn't use before.
What do you think of these developments? Have you heard of any other cool medical news this week?
