difference in technique
Leah Brooks (ditto@cfl.rr.com)
Hi, You posted one minute after me--how funny! Difference in technique: smaller incision with Dr. Park. Also the selection of nerve rootlets to cut is a highly subjective process. They do utilize a technique where the nerves are tested to see which ones are spastic, but the test tends to be rather inaccurate. I think Dr. Park has a 6th sense, knowing which to cut and which to leave. By the way, Hannah was trying to crawl out of bed 12 hours after surgery. She was up and moving by day 3. At most other hospitals, the kids are weak noodles for weeks. At St. Louis, they are up and moving. It's all in the nerves that are cut!
