BEIRUT: Lebanese-American neuro and brain surgeon Dr. Mohammad Baydoun, found a cure for one of the most complex types of paralysis known as Quadriplegic Paralysis, which is a disease that affects thousands of athletes yearly.

Dr. Baydoun’s research was conducted over a period of 5 years on 10 patients. The cure functions by a newly developed technological technique, which functions by the extraction of stem cells from the patient’s belly fat and then injecting these into their spinal cord.

“The results of our research revealed positive effects on patients. Some patients cured entirely while others saw improvements in some areas of their body,” Dr. Baydoun said.

The cure was tested on Chris Parr at Mayo Clinic, who suffered from three years of Quadriplegic Paralysis from his neck to the tips of his toe as a result of a water ski accident. He cured two weeks post-test.

For the surgery to deem effective, Baydoun explained to Annahar that “the spinal cord must be at least a little bit suspended. In the rare cases of complete rupture, patients do not benefit from the cure.”

He continued to explain that no patients were harmed during the research. The cure has also shown positive effect on many patients suffering from involuntary urination, defecation, and erection.

Dr. Baydoun explained to Annahar that the research is not over yet. The next step includes implementing the method on 40 more patients and the last step includes experimenting technically on a number of patients.

“The research is currently being experimented on patients whose injuries were a result of an accident or strong fall. As for those whose injuries were a result of bullet wounds, for example, these will participate in the coming stages,” Dr. Baydoun explained. “We are using genetic testing, which help us in knowing the condition of each patient more accurately.”
