Ethan Maidl is 11 years old, suffering from Stevens Johnson syndrome treated by Charles S. Bouchard, MD.

“It is miraculous,” said ophthalmologist Dr. Charles Bouchard, of Loyola University Medical Center, “It’s miraculous both in the treatment of the acute eye disease, and the treatment of the chronic disease.”

Bouchard explains Ethan’s vision was saved, in the nick of time, through a surgery wrapping his eyes with donated placental tissue from Cesarean sections. “It reduces inflammation. It reduces scarring. It reduces new blood vessel growth,” said Dr. Bouchard.
