About

Children with cerebral palsy are at an increased risk of having their hips move partially or completely out of joint. This can cause pain and restrict movement at the hip, making sitting in a wheelchair uncomfortable and make personal care difficult. This condition may be treated with surgery. Surgeons use x-rays taken before and after the surgery to determine whether or not the surgery has been successful. However, it is also important to know whether the surgery has improved life from the child or the caregiver's point of view. The investigators will also evaluate if waiting for surgery affects the child. This information will be added to results from a physical exam and an evaluation of the child's x-rays for a more complete picture of how this surgery impacts the lives of our patients. It is predicted that that the health-related quality of life of children with cerebral palsy will improve following surgery.

Full description

HRQoL will be measured using the Child Health Index of Life with Disabilities (CPCHILD). Our specific hypothesis is that health related quality of life, as measured by the CPCHILD will change by at least a mean of 10 points from pre- to post-surgery.
