Can I ask what femoral de-rotation osteotomy does?
I am wondering, our child is due to have SDR in October. I have noticed more recently that one of her legs turns in at the knee a lot more when she walks and therefor the foot turns and drags on the ground. She uses a k-walker and this happens when she is wearing her AFOs - is this the sort of surgery they do to correct it?
I am in Ireland and we are travelling to Missouri for the surgery (SDR) in October. Over here in Ireland there is little surgical intervention for children with CP and we are left in the dark a lot of the time and are just expected to rely on infrequent physio services
