A Cleveland company has developed a stem cell therapy that could help treat spinal cord patients immediately after they suffer an injury. 

The treatment has shown some initial promise, but still must be tested on human patients and receive approvals.

However, Scott Fedor, of Cleveland, who has a spinal cord injury, heard about the treatment says he is hopeful it could help people who suffer a similar injury. The treatment, however, would not help Fedor. 

"I am doing everything I want to do. I do it from the chair for the time being … who knows, maybe I will be doing it on my feet pretty soon," Fedor said of the treatment.
