Operation Selective dorsal rhizotomy In Kazakhstan
Effective treatment for cerebral palsy
the operation is performed by an experienced neurosurgeon with 30 years of experience, Ph.D. Shashkin Chingiz Sakaevich
Selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) is a method of neurosurgical adjustment of muscle tone with high efficiency and reliability, intended for the treatment of patients with spastic cerebral palsy (ICP).
SDR relieves pain symptoms and muscle tendon tension. The essence of the procedure is the crossing of parts of the spinal roots using neurophysiological monitoring. On average, the operation lasts three or four hours. Through a small incision, the vertebral plate is removed, freeing access to the spinal cord. Then the nerve roots are divided into fibers. The fibers that form muscle tone are stimulated by an electrical impulse. The surgeon then cuts the spastic fibers. Further, the operation ends, the patient is observed in the ward

How is the operation going?
The development of movements after surgery depends on the skills of the child. If the children walked in a walker or with a stick before the operation, there is a chance of moving on their own, or the child did not move, but got up and sat down on his own, then he will probably start walking with the help of a walker. Progress also depends on rehabilitation. Doctors advise six months in a row to do exercises that help you start moving and keep your balance.
