After three months of waiting and a fair bit of nail biting, we have just received a letter from Dr Aquilina at Bristol’s Frenchay Hospital confirming an appointment for full SDR assessment in November 2012. This is exciting news as it puts Caitlin one step closer to the potentially life changing procedure. 

Mr Aquilina, the first paediatric neurosurgeon to perform the modern version of SDR in this country based exactly on the method developed by Dr Park in Missouri, is under incredible amounts of pressure from all sides since his bold decision to bring the procedure to this country in 2010/11. It has no doubt been a long slog and we hope the rewards are suitable for changing the lives and opportunity of so many families here in the UK.
