Belgium terrorist attack survivor Sebastien Bellin walking again

June 27, 2016  //  FOUND IN: News,

After surviving a bombing in the Brussels airport in March, Sebastien Bellin underwent several surgeries while still in Brussels to repair his hips and legs.

A former professional basketball player standing at 6 feet 9 inches tall, Bellin is a Michigan native and wanted to perform his rehabilitation therapy closer to home.

That’s where the U-M Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit (6A) came in.  

Once he arrived, the team started putting Seb, as he is called by family and friends, to work right away in physical and occupational therapy sessions with one goal in mind – to help him walk again.

Learn more about Seb’s story and our Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit team in stories that recently aired on CBS This Morning and ESPN’s Outside the Lines. And look for an hour-long documentary on Seb (and his therapy here at U-M) to air later this fall on CBS.
