Dr. Valerio Helps Soldier Regain Use of His Wounded Arm
Dr. Valerio was recently featured on WNDU-TV in their story on a soldier, Jeffrey Cole, whose arm was severely wounded while on deployment. After several surgeries, doctors prepared to amputate, but fellow soldier Dr. Valerio offered an experimental option: a transplant of a large nerve. He inserted a 7cm section of uniquely prepared human tissue, an avance nerve allograft, into the soldier’s arm. Watch the video below and click here to learn more.
