Spastic celebral palsy

Hi, my nephew has Spastic Cerebral Palsy, the patient’s muscle tone was abnormally increased in all four limbs. The movement of his limbs was slightly limited, and he could not sit up from prone (lying) position. The flexion and extension of knee joints were not complete, and worse in left side. He could stand with help, and used a scissor-leg and tip-toe gait. His hands were able to grasp bulky items, but the fine motor skill was poor. Can v go for stem cell therapy . would that help. Could any one suggest n do the needful.

Hi, I understand your concern. Stem cells are still in the early stages of development. Don't know if they would help a lot. If the exact cause is identified then if it treatable needs to be identified.
