The provincial government of Ontario will offer Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) surgery, a specialized procedure performed on the lower spinal cord which may permanently reduce muscle spasticity and help patients with cerebral palsy learn to walk. Candidates for the surgery include children between the ages of four and eight who struggle to walk due to their cerebral palsy. The SDR program will allow Canadian surgeon Dr. James Drake to perform the surgery for 10 to 15 children per year in Ontario, changing the lives of many Canadian families by preventing total wheelchair dependency.
If your child is affected by cerebral palsy as a result of malpractice and you believe you have a cerebral palsy claim, call us at 877-262-9767 to learn about your rights and compensation you may be eligible to receive.
