Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy

Selective dorsal rhizotomy is used as a surgical treatment for cerebral palsy and spasticity. It involves decreasing high muscle tone in the legs by cutting nerve fibers in the lower spinal cord. This surgery can result in better freedom of movement for children with cerebral palsy. This procedure is performed at Seattle Children's, where you can find more information.
