Dr Carlos Lima is a leading world expert on the use of
adult stem cells in treating spinal cord injury. For
some years patients have travelled to his clinic in
Lisbon, Portugal. Dr Lima removes adult stem cells
from the olfactory bulb and injects them back into the
damaged spinal cord. Kim Gould recently became the
first British patient to receive treatment from Dr
Lima. For 6 years Kim has been confined to a wheel
chair. She now has sensation in her legs and is
learning to crawl.
