Surgical Procedure Can Reduce Pain, Improve Mobility For Children With Cerebral Palsy
There is no cure for cerebral palsy, but there are treatments that can reduce pain and movement difficulties for children.
As CBS2’s Dr. Max Gomez reported Friday, a delicate surgical procedure is making a big difference for one little girl.
“She was so excited about this surgery, thinking it is going to be magical cut and she will be all good,” said Sushma Manjunatha, the mother of 5-year-old Bhoomi Manjunatha.
Bhoomi’s parents gave her kisses of encouragement and she prepared to undergo a rare spinal surgery called selective dorsal rhizotomy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio.
