Fortunately Mischa has just been accepted to have an operation. The selective dorsal rhizotomy operation involves cutting the nerves at the base of Mischa's spine that cause the abnormal tone in her legs. This will permanently reduce the spasticity in Mischa's lower limbs, improving her sitting and standing postures significantly.
