More information on patient

Sergiy is a resident of Kharkov city, that was enlisted in the Ukrainian Border Troops in late March. A soldier serving in one of the hottest places in the ATO zone – at a border checkpoint near the village of Krasnaya Talovka in the Stanichno-Luhansk region, which at that time was shelled the hardest.

Sergiy was injured on the 21st of September. Due to the direct hit of the bullet, his tibia is highly fractured. With this injury, he was immediately sent to the Odessa Military Hospital.The soldier underwent several operations, his injury was complicated by the development of posttraumatic osteomyelitis and putrid infection, and now part of his left tibia is virtually absent.The only possible way to restore leg after such a defect – complex surgery using cell technology.

Our wounded – a true patriot, one of the few Ukrainian language speakers in Kharkiv. Sergiy was an active member of the Kharkov Euromaidan.
When he was drafted into the army, he happily went to serve his country, despite the fact that he was the sole wage-earner for his old mother, and his sister had a hearing problem. Sergiy prearranged his participation in the defense of Ukraine and handed his business to his colleagues before he was drafted. He decided that it would be better if he went to war than the father of the family, who may die and leave his children alone. He his very modest fellow, even when he was still bedridden, he refused even the basic necessities – clothes, diapers, care items.

Now his family (mother, sister and nephew) does not know about his injury – the guy does not want to upset 73-year-old mother, as he is afraid that she might not survive the news. In peacetime, Sergiy worked at a factory, and later became an entrepreneur. Since he was 13 years old, he was actively engaged in martial arts – he adores aikido, judo, karate, and since the end of 2000 helped to train children and helped with organizational issues of the martial arts center.

Let’s help restore the health of the defender of the Fatherland and a true patriot!

Restoration of the tibia of the border guard Serhii in 5 months after operation

10.11.2015

New results have been received regarding treatment of the border guard Serhii who had the worse bone defect up to 14 cm among other injured soldiers. New X-ray picture taken in 5 months after basic operation using bio technologies shows active processes of shinbone defect restoration.

Restoration of a 15-centimeter shin defect continues

17.09.2015

An X-ray image of Serhii’s leg shows union of the injected block (osteoplastic material with autologous stem cells) in the proximal one-third of the shin in 3 months after the main stage of the treatment. Thus, the biggest 15 cm defect in the project ‘Biotech-rehabilitation of the Wounded’ is successfully restoring after application of cell technologies.
