Jeffrey, Medically Retired U.S. Marine Corporal

Jeffrey is now a medically retired U.S. Marine. In 2010, he was on routine patrol with his unit in Afghanistan when they were struck with gunfire from enemy forces. Jeffrey was struck several times and suffered severe damage to his left brachial artery as well as his left ulnar nerve. Avance® Nerve Graft as well as AxoGuard® Nerve Protector were used to repair the damage to Jeffrey’s ulnar nerve allowing his nerve to regenerate and restore muscle and sensory function.

Disclaimer: Experience from thousands of uses of AxoGen's Avance® Nerve Graft processed nerve graft; AxoGuard® Nerve Protector and AxoGuard® Nerve Connector demonstrate a range of recovered sensory and motor function from none to near complete restoration. Each patient outcome is dependent upon the nature and extent of nerve loss or damage, the timing between nerve loss and repair, and the natural course of the patient's recovery. These testimonials and patient stories provided reflect the experience of the particular individual and do not represent typical results.
