Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery (Functional Stereotaxy) for Cerebral Palsy

History

The patient is a 9-year-old boy when he was first admitted to Beijing Puhua International Hospital due to developmental delay mobility and intellectual development since birth in Jan 2015.

After the first time of nerve repair treatment, the patient’s general condition was improved in muscle tone of four limbs was less hypertonic and more flexible, as were the fingers of both hands. Muscle strength of trunk and four limbs was also improved: he began to more easily rise from sitting position with assistance.
One month after discharge, the young Patient Zayan Asad continued to show significant improvement, including being able to sit up from prone (lying) position.

On Nov 2015, Zayan’s family came back for second cycle of treatment, but due to his family issues, he hasn’t finished the whole treatment and left in advance. Even though he had only received one time nerve repair treatment, Zayan’s family still noticed his improvement after the treatment. His muscle strength became stronger, and muscle tone is more relaxed than the first time.

Soon Zayan has developed partial epilepsy. He has been taking medications but there is no improvement. So they came back to BPIH for third cycle of treatment.
