    Cool Adults who underwent SDR (selective dorsal rhizotomy)

    This is a radical treatment approach that may benefit some. Have you done any reasearch of your own on this subject. Do you understand what this is?

    Yes, I have read many web pages on the internet about the surgery. I also got in touch with some neurosurgeons, PT-s, orthopaedists,...etc. The opinions are contradictory. What Im searching for are personal testimonies of adults with spastic diplegic CP who underwent this radical and risky surgery.

    I just wanted to know if adults would benefit from this surgery more than others, or would it matter?

    Hello Mollie,

    from what I have read, adults have poorer results after SDR, than children. Children have more "elastic and softer" nerves and they haven't had the time to "learn" and develope alternative muscle control pathways like adults
