Platelet Rich Plasma for Motor Nerve Paralysis


I was diagnosed with Miller Fisher’s syndrome (a form of Guillain-Barré syndrome GBS) on 5/19/2013 which is an autoimmune disease that attacks the nerves of the face. Hospital treatment stopped further damage, but my facial nerve paralysis did not improve for 2 months.  I had no motion in my face.  I could not open my eyes, or smile or move my lips.  I went to a famous facial retraining physical therapist however was told that it would take a long time for the nerve to grow back at my age (70years old)  Dr. Jason Miller started the stem-cell program on my face.  The first phase was to inject my own growth hormone on 7/12/2014, 10 days later my facial muscles started to move slightly and by 8/5/2014 I re-gained my ability to smile.  I did not need to take the second phase of treatment with my own stem cells.  That was amazing and my physical therapist was surprised as well.    Dr. Miller was kind and patient.  I am grateful for his professional knowledge and surgical skills.  I would recommend highly his advanced treatment with growth hormone and stem cells. – Philip Y.
