Planning your rehabilitation: a guide for children and families having lower limb orthopaedic surgery for cerebral palsy

Published on by Tessa de Vries
This booklet and accompanying audio podcast answer some of the questions children and their families may have about rehabilitation after an orthopaedic operation. Other children with cerebral palsy who had lower limb orthopaedic surgery and their families told us what was important for them. We have used that information to help write this booklet.
