My daughter, Nina, has spastic diplegia. Before her rhizotomy (SDR: selective dorzal rhizotomy) her cerebral palsy was quite involved. They chart kids in a 1-4 scale. One being mild, and four being most involved. My daughter was at a four before this surgery.
Before her rhizotomy, Nina had a gait lab analysis. This last Monday, she had another gait lab done to determine her progress two years following her surgery, and determine the next steps.
The progress she has made in two years is pretty amazing! Here is a before and after video.
