Breakthrough surgery in Manipal hospital cures Parkinson's disease

Indian stem cell researchers at the Manipal hospital have announced the first worldwide case of a recovery from Parkinson's disease by use of stem cells from the patient's own body.

The claim is significant because the patient, Andrew Kisana, a US citizen of Pakistani origin, had come to Manipal hospital for treatment for Parkinson's disease after receiving both conventional as well as surgical treatment for the disease in the US.

“This is clearly the first such clearly documented case in which a patient has recovered from Parkinson’s disease after the use of stem cells”, according to hospital officials.
