While living in New Orleans 4 years ago as a healthy, active 49-year-old, I suffered a massive stroke (complete occlusion of the right carotid artery). After 9 days in ICU, my prognosis was heartbreaking. As a man who ran 3 miles every day, I was now bound to a wheelchair and could not hold my head up or eat on my own. In fact, I could no longer do anything on my own. After 3 years of seeking various treatments from top rated doctors in the US and attending constant physical therapy, I had made some improvement but was nowhere near where I hoped to be. After researching the IMAC Stroke Protocol which includes stem cell treatment, I decided to give it a try. I had my first stem cell procedure in April 2016. The primary improvements I have experienced so far include relief from chronic depression, motivation to engage in physical and social activities, cognitive and motor skills – and am now walking with a cane with minor assistance. I believe complete recovery is possible and continue to have steady improvement. I feel more hopeful and confident after treatment at IMAC. I have better mobility and function for daily activities and have a happier outlook on life.
