Left hand, left shoulder joint gunshot injury effect;

  • defect of the left humerus;
  • avascular necrosis of the head of the left humerus.


Course of injury in the event of non-use of cellular technologies: Soldier might loss his joint, upon which shoulder replacement is commonly used and upon complications – amputation is possible. But reconstructive and restorative treatment using cellular technology will help save joint and maximize return of its functions.


Required treatment: reconstructive and restorative treatment of humerus injury using biotechnologies.

More information about the injured soldier

Serhii is a soldier of the 95th Separate air mobile brigade. On May 1, 2017 he received a gunshot injury of through-upper third of the left shoulder injury of shoulder joint head near Shyroka Balka village. This happened during the attack from the enemy positions. The soldier was quickly evacuated from the battle field and taken to Troitska hospital, where the first surgical treatment of wounds and fixation of the left upper extremity with plaster cast was performed.

After that he was treated in military hospitals in Kharkiv and Kyiv. He had to undergo several operations. Now Serhii  has dangerous complications – bone edema is observed, the risk of rejection of the left shoulder and, as a consequence – loss of extremity. The left hand does not work, there is no sensitivity. But Serhii  is planning to stay in the Ukrainian army, and for this – it is essential not only to save the hand, but recover its function at maximum. Therefore, Serhii referred to the project “Biotech-rehabilitation of the injured” where doctors suggested him a complex but effective treatment of his injury.

Serhii lives in Zhytomyr. Before the war he was an entrepreneur. He was mobilized to the Armed Forces of Ukraine during the second wave of mobilization since the summer of 2014, where he had been defending the homeland till the present. He participated in combat operations in many places of the boundary line. He has two children – 4-year-old daughter and 19-year-old son. He is fond of outdoor activities and sports. He has been playing volleyball since childhood. He hopes to recover quicker and return to normal life.

Let’s help save the hand of the hero!
