Patient Suffering from Parkinson's Travels Outside U.S. to get Stem Cell Treatment

Manipal Hospital, Bangalore claimed of having discovered stem cells that help in recovery of a patient suffering from Parkinson's Disease (PD). Manipal used the benefits of stem cell research and helped US national Andrew Kisana get a new hope.

Andrew, who was suffering from PD for more than 15 years, came to Manipal Hospital as a last resort after having undergone treatment in US hospitals. After stem cell therapy last year, Andrew has shown remarkable recovery in his symptom as he has started walking without support, there has been significant reduction in the tremors and above all, he has a feeling of well being and personal comfort. His medication for PD has been withdrawn since the last months. This successful recovery of Andrew, will give new hope to many others suffering from debilitating Parkinson's disease.
