Hi there,

Unfortunately this is not a fixable problem and the neurosurgeons are likely correct. I don't know how much damage he has suffered, but hypoxic damage to the brain is usually irreversible, meaning it cannot be fixed. I am sorry to confirm the bad news you are probably much aware of, but it doesn't sound like there is a quick fix here. You can certainly try to wait and see if he recovers some neurological function, as some patients will recover over time, but if the damage is severe, then a recovery is quite unlikely given what you have said here.

I hope I have answered your questions. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions or if you feel I haven't addressed your question adequately.
