Real Housewives of Miami viewers got an intimate glimpse into Alexia Nepola’s resilient journey with her son Frankie at Miami’s renowned Casa Privee Medical Center on a season 6 episode of the Bravo series. The high-end facility, specializing in medical concierge services, was the backdrop for a crucial moment in Frankie’s ongoing battle with severe brain damage.

During their 10th visit to Casa Privee, Frankie, a 26-year-old survivor of a harrowing car crash, underwent another session of the experimental hyperbaric oxygen therapy. This cutting-edge treatment, comprising a total of 24 sessions, aims to harness the healing potential of oxygen in aiding neurological recovery.

The RHOM star shared her optimism with Frankie’s treatment expert, Dr. Bankole Johnson, after she noticed encouraging signs of progress despite Frankie only being halfway through the treatment plan. Alexia revealed that Frankie, who was in the passenger seat during the 2011 accident, showed increased interaction and was even picking up new words.

The Nepola family now finds themselves in a “much better place,” Alexia explained on the show.
