Daria is a talented young girl, who sings and plays the piano and is dreaming of a future related to the world of music.
In 2012 a car hit Daria, because of which she got a serious brain injury. The girl had a lot of operations. Because of the injuries and the operations, she started to have frequent epileptic seizures. In 2014, after long wanderings through rehabilitation centers in Europe and Russia, Daria and her family came to Thessaloniki for treatment. At St.Luke’s Clinic neurologist-epileptologist Kiriakos Garganis made a detailed examination and chose an optimal treatment for her, after which the seizures were reduced to a minimum. This helped the young girl with her further treatment at the Medical and rehabilitation centre “Anagennisi” to recover her brain functions, correct way of walking and fine motor skills. The centre’s logotherapists, even without the knowledge of the Russian language, could find the right way to approach the patient and achieved great results in her speech therapy.
After little rest, the decision to move to the next stage of treatment was taken. In November 2017, Daria underwent an implantation of stem cells which were taken from her iliac crest and enriched in the BIOGENESIS laboratory. One part of the cells were transplanted with the assistance of lumbar puncture, while another part was inserted into the bloodstream.
