At Kentuckiana Integrative Medicine, we try to help patients with complicated problems such as Stroke, Parkinson’s, Traumatic brain injury, [Even 20 years after stroke injury – Ask Karen Campisano (office manager – 812-923-4416.] We treated her father at 85 years old 20 years AFTER his stroke in 1993 using peri-spinal etanercept with great results. He had a dense “expressive aphasia-inability to say words and great difficulty processing and understanding conversation due to hearing and brain damage. Just hours after treatment at a Christmas party, his speech was fluid. June Campisano was himself again entertained and regaled his brothers, sisters and cousins with his story telling and jokes. He recalled the names of family members who had not seen him in years. Hard to believe we know, but watch videos. Dr. Cruz learned about peri-spinal etanercept and treated his father who had suffered a cervical cord spinal stroke leaving him with partial paralysis- weakness in both arms- hands and legs.
