he has been doing physiotherapy from the time he was 8 months.it has helped much , but he seems to be getting contractures and the tendons r shortening.he started crwaling at 2 and has perfected the art, surgery seems to be the next best option.

It would surprise me if any doctor skipped the physical therapy and went directly to surgery.....unless he has other physical medical needs.
