Megan and SDR

Megan is a beautiful little girl with Cerebral Palsy. Her Mom, Stephanie, first heard about Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) on TV, and just knew it would be a great thing for Megan. Megan was 9 years old when she got travelled to St Louis from the UK and got the surgery, and Stephanie says she only wishes that she'd known about it sooner! The following video shows the awesome progress Megan was able to achieve in the six months after undergoing SDR. (Please watch it, it's amazing!)

Megan is now 9 months post-op, and here is another video showing how much further she has come:

Well done Megan! You have come so far, and it is wonderful to watch.
Please visit Megan's website for more information.

NB: It should be noted that the the SDR performed by Dr Park in St Louis differs from traditional rhizotomies offered by other facilities, and if this is a surgery you are looking into, make sure you research the differences.
