Cerebral Palsy Surgical Options
Children who suffer from cerebral palsy typically need treatment or therapy throughout their life to improve their functionality and quality of life. One of these treatment options is surgical treatment. While this type of treatment can be extremely helpful, they may be invasive and extremely expensive. Fortunately, a family may be able to get financial compensation to cover these costs when another party was responsible for the child’s cerebral palsy.
If your child developed cerebral palsy due to a doctor or nurse’s errors during, before, or after delivery, we may be able to help you fight for financial compensation through an injury claim. For a free consultation regarding your options, contact a dedicated cerebral palsy birth injury lawyer of the Driscoll Firm, today by calling (800) 900-7704.
How Surgery Can Help
Cerebral palsy can severely limit mobility, making it difficult for a child to move their arms and legs. Surgical procedures may improve mobility and reduce pain though. These procedures can include the following treatments:
- Surgery that removes select nerves
- Surgery that lengthens muscles or modifies tendons
- Surgery that applies medicinal pumps in the body
- Spinal curve treatments
When your child has cerebral palsy, you should be able to take whatever steps are necessary to improve their quality of life. Without financial assistance however, this can be difficult if the treatment is extensive or expensive.
Surgical treatments for cerebral palsy can create a significant financial burden due to the high cost of medical care and recovery expenses. If your family is facing these expenses due to the negligence of a doctor or nurse, you may be eligible to sue for compensation.
