Meet the child
Nikita is a cheerful boy with many interests: he leads an active school life, he draws wonderfully, is fond of fencing and never gives up.

After two years, Nikita's parents noticed underdevelopment of the lower jaw and its immobility. Fibrous ankylosis of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) was diagnosed. Today Nikita's diagnos is secondary degenerative arthritis which is characterized by reducing mouth opening, pain during jaw movement, joint tenderness and others.

The boy was recommended a stage operative treatment of the mandibula with compression-distraction devices, which are not provided by the clinic free of charge. The first stage of operative therapy was carried out in 2012, the next operation was carried out in 2015 followed by a long period of remission..

Unfortunately, the disease again manifested itself. Nikita is suffering from respiratory and sleep disorders, respiratory disorders, poor weight gain, headaches and other symptoms caused by pathology.

Nikita needs to conduct the next stage of surgery. The next surgery are being scheduled in May, 2019 for futher treatment. Unfortunately, Nikita’s family can not afford these devices on their own because of their high cost.

Dear benefactors, thank you for helping Nikita in his recovery!
Together we make a difference!
