The procedure helps in treating the problems occurring because of spasticity, and cerebral palsy. Spasticity is a condition in which certain muscles are continuously contracted. It is usually caused by damage to the portion of the brain or spinal cord that controls voluntary movement. Cerebral Palsy is a group of permanent movement disorders that appear in early childhood. The surgery improves the movement of the contracted hamstring muscles and corrects hunched posture.
What happens during the procedure?
The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. A few incisions are made behind the knees or behind the buttock. The incisions are approximately two inches in length. The tendinous parts of muscles are then cut and allowed to be stretched out to release tightness.
After Hamstring Lengthening
The patient would probably have to stay a night in the hospital. Depending upon the gravity of the surgery, some people may have to wear knee immobilisers, cast, or braces for some time.
