Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery (Functional Stereotaxy) for Cerebral Palsy


The patient was first admitted to Beijing Puhua International Hospital in early 2010 due to postnatal delays in speech and motor ability, and recurrent episodes of convulsion. His results were excellent.
Four years later, on September 15th 2014, Patient Yousuf came back to this hospital for further Treatment for Cerebral Palsy.

Medical Condition Prior to Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery (Functional Stereotaxy) for Cerebral Palsy

Yousuf could not speak and can only makes sounds like ‘hum, ah.’ He had blink reflex when hearing sounds, but no obvious visual tracking. He smiled sometimes when hearing relatives’ voices. Muscle tension was high in all extremities. Modest spontaneous lift movements could be seen in four limbs. The patient showed avoidance response to painful stimuli.

Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery for Cerebral Palsy

During admission, several medical protocols were applied, including stereotactic treatment to repair the injured neural cells, medical treatment to assist in the improvement of cerebral circulation, nutrition and metabolism, combined with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and rehabilitation training.

Medical Condition after Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery for Cerebral Palsy

After minimally invasive brain repair treatment with neural growth factors injections for Cerebral Palsy, the patient’s general condition was improved after his Stereotactic Therapy. He was able to track movements to sound or move objects much easier than before the treatment. The patient became more sensitive to external stimuli, and developed better emotional responses and responses to other stimuli. His muscular tension began to improve, with more normal tone in his hands and extremities. Spontaneous movement of his limbs began to increase, and he also began to hold his head upright longer while sitting up.
