The Foundation recognizes Ana Sofia Gutierrez for her significant contribution to research on RSD / CRPS.


At the age of 18, Ana was the first patient to undergo the ketamine coma procedure in Mexico. Her success led to the approval of the study by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for San José Hospital and the Technological of Monterrey School of Medicine in Monterrey, México.


Ana and her family have donated many hours comforting research subjects who have traveled thousands of miles for the ketamine coma procedure.


The following video reveals Ana’s battle and triumph over RSD / CRPS.
