Selective dorsal rhizotomy is a surgical procedure aimed to sectioning the dorsal nerve roots of the lumbosacral region in patients with cerebral palsy. It is still controversial how much it contributes to the daily life of the patients. It is believed that it has positive effects on patient function and decreases the rate of orthopedic corrective surgery after selecting the appropriate patient.
