Racing legend Michael Schumacher ‘conscious’ after undergoing surgery

"And I can assure you that he is conscious".

Michael Schumacher is "conscious", claims a nurse at the Paris hospital where the stricken F1 legend has been taken for stem cell treatment. The 69-year-old professor is a cardiac and brain surgeon and is described by the daily as a 'pioneer in cell surgery.' He was the world's first surgeon to perform an embryonic cell transplant in 2014 on a woman with a heart failure.

For even people who do not follow the sport, Michael Schumacher is certainly a name which becomes nearly synonymous with Formula 1.

In 2018, Schumacher was thought to be traveling to Texas where his family is said to own an 18-hectare ranch.

Following the near-fatal injury in December 2013, Schumacher was placed in a drug-induced coma from which medics gradually withdrew him after he displayed "moments of consciousness". At that time, we had made an attempt to inject the same cells we use for multiple sclerosis into the brain of a boy in a coma with quite good results. Despite a slow recovery, continued treatment is said to be underway after Parisian news outlets indicated that Schumacher was being admitted to a French hospital to undergo a "secret treatment".

While this is not thought to involve the Pixel 4, it's possible demo models were sent to the factory for testing and whatnot. This will likely open the Pixel Themes app for customizing the accent colors, font, icon shape, and more on the Pixel 4.

Through the choice of their family, they've previously kept information about his treatment and progress under wraps due to their beliefs of privacy.

On June 3, 2019, when Schumacher turned 50, his family issued a public statement saying: "You can be sure that he is in the very best of hands and that we are doing everything humanly possible to help him".

"He has sustained an injury while skiing, which unfortunately happens to ordinary people every year".

Representatives and family members of Schumacher have not publicly commented on the treatment.

Stem cell treatment is often sought out by the families of individuals who have undergone a traumatic brain injury as a way to restore neuroplasticity and help to promote the fix of otherwise permanent damage.
