Mumbai: Thanks to stem cell therapy a 24-year-old engineering student who was crippled due to Multiple Sclerosis has started to walk again.
Sushant Chavan was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in October 2011. Though he initiated medical treatment, Chavan’s condition deteriorated within two years and he lost his speech and even urinary control.
He was treated by Pradeep Mahajan, a city-based expert in stem cell therapy.
According to Mahajan, Chavan’s condition had deterioriated to such an extent that medicines were not making any positive effect due to the late diagnosis of the disease. Hence, he was given the stem cell therapy in different sessions with a proper time gap.
The therapy yielded the desired results.
