Best Doctor For Cerebral Palsy Treatment in Lucknow
Dr. Gurucharan Lal Arora is known as the Best Doctor for Deformity Treatment in Lucknow, NCR, India. He is a known name in the field of Orthopedics for Cerebral Palsy treatment, treating polio, CTEV/Clubfoot and other deformity cases. He has changed thousands of lives during his 30 years of practice and still counting. Dr. Arora has done his M.B.B.S and M.S (Orthopedics) from Pt. J.N.M. Medical College, Raipur. He is a gold medalist as far as his Masters in concerned. Dr. Arora started his house job in the department of pediatric surgery in Nanavati Hospital Mumbai. This inspired him to do some more for children to improve their quality of life and prevention as well as the treatment of the deformities (polio, CTEV, Cerebral Palsy related deformities etc).
Cerebral Palsy is a non-progressive neuromuscular disorder that includes many physical as well as the mental challenges. Some children with cerebral palsy have a few deformities while others represent a whole set of them.
Causes of Cerebral Palsy can be
1. Before the Birth – This includes any maternal infections during pregnancy, drinking and smoking habits of the mother and some environmental and genetic factors.
2. After the Birth – The reason of the cerebral palsy after the birth can be premature birth, Oxygen-deprivation post birth, Non-availability of oxygen resources after birth and some infections and related diseases can give rise to cerebral palsy.
The most common Deformities that are found in the patients with cerebral palsy and their treatments are :
1. CTEV – Congenital Talipes Equinovarus or Clubfoot can be seen in many CP (Cerebral Palsy) cases. The foot (or both) are pointing inwards thus making the child unable to stand erect and walk normally. The treatment of CTEV ranges from the splints to the surgery. In most cases, 100 percent recovery is seen.
2. Contracture Release – As most cases of cerebral palsy have increased muscle tone in them, thus making the muscles tight and painful. These tight muscles and tendons ultimately form contractures if not treated in time with braces and exercises. The contractures are then released surgically by splitting the muscle/tendon and then allowing them to heal in a lengthened position. This surgery imparts very good results in the walking patterns of the patient too.
3. Scoliosis correction – As the muscles of the spine are also imbalanced, the vertebrae rotate and form a C or S-shaped curve. This gives rise to an even hump-like appearance on the back. The braces like spinal jackets are used to treat the deformity. The surgical treatment is performed by doing the spinal fusion.
4. Hip Dysplasia – The weak or tight muscles make the hip to dislocate frequently. It can occur in one or both hips of the baby. The Realignment of the hip joint is the most effective treatment of the hip dysplasia using acetabular osteotomy or proximal femoral osteotomy.
5. Flat foot treatment – Some children with cerebral palsy are born with a flat foot. In most cases, the flat foot is treated without the surgical measures and just by the use of orthotics.
6. Toe-walking or equinus treatment– Many children suffering from CP have a toe-walking pattern. The walk on their toes due to the shortening of the Achilles tendon. A surgery is performed to lengthen the Achilles tendon thus correcting the toe-walking pattern.
7. Torsional Deformities – Sometimes there is Inward or outward rotation in the bones of lower limbs in the CP patients. The Rotational osteotomy correction surgery is performed to correct the deformity.
Question 1. When can a child undergo the surgery for the deformity correction?
Answer. It varies with the overall condition of the child. The factors like inability to walk or the extent of deformities define the time of surgery. So we decide it by examining the child first.
Question 2. What is the best time for surgery that a surgeon thinks will be best for a child with cerebral palsy?
Answer. 4 years of age.
Question 3. Are the orthotic braces necessary for the correction of the deformity?
Answer. Yes, Some are corrected just by the use of orthotic braces and the others are corrected by a combination of surgery and orthotic braces.
Question 4. Is it necessary to go for a surgery in cerebral palsy deformity correction?
Answer. Only mild spastic cases can be improved with the help of physiotherapy & braces. Majority of cases need surgical treatment for better results.
Question 5. How long the effects of orthopedic surgery last?
Answer. The effects of orthopedic surgery are permanent, except in the few cases of recurrence of deformity or change in the correction with the growth of the child. In those cases, another surgery is required.
Question 6. What are the main things to consider after an orthopedic surgery?
Answer. Braces must be worn as advised and all the exercises must be followed. Don’t stop the exercises or the braces unless advised by your orthopedic surgeon.
