Cerebral palsy SDR surgery call for Wales
The family of a boy with cerebral palsy who paid £55,000 for a specialist operation in the US want it made available on the NHS in Wales.
Ifan Thomas, four, from Denbighshire, had selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) to aid his spastic diplegia three months ago and improve his mobility.
His parents say it is wrong a lack of money prevents other children from being treated, if appropriate.
The Welsh Government said it was monitoring the evaluation of a trial.
Ifan’s cerebral palsy caused him to walk up on his toes, meaning it was impossible to walk independently.
