: My 13 year old son has cp and almost no use of his left hand. His orthopaedic surgeon referred us to a hand surgeon who wants to do surgery to give him some grasp in that hand. However, his brain may still continue to ignore that side. Has anyone had this surgery and what were the results? Our goal is for him to be able to use a zipper and put on socks.
I am a 14 year old wih mild cp and a few years ago I had surgery and like your son before I had no use of my left hand but now after the surgery I have a little more use of my left hand
