Doctors in Germany recently have claimed to have successfully treated a child with cerebral palsy using a new treatment of stem cells.
Known as “LB,” the little boy’s condition improved weeks after he was given umbilical cord blood through an intravenous stem cell treatment. The boy, who was in a vegetative state after a heart attack, can now talk and move within months after the treatment. According to the doctors who provided the treatment, the results of the stem cell treatment to the boy disprove doubts about the efficacy of stem cell treatment.
Developing cerebral palsy due to medical malpractice is devastating, and is, unfortunately, something that happens to far too many children. Treating and living with this condition can be expensive; however, when it is the fault of another party, such as a medical professional, our lawyers at The Driscoll Firm may be able to help obtain financial compensation to off-set many of these costs. Call (800) 305-9800 to discuss your options if you believe your child was the victim of medical malpractice.
