The first description of any surgical procedure in the treatment of cerebral palsy was Delpech’s tenotomy (1816), an operation used for the correction of the deformities of the feet. Since then various operations have been done on muscles, tendons, nerves, bones and joints and a review of literature over the period reveals developing trends and changed ideas with the growth of knowledge in this field. It is well known (McCarroll and Schwartzmann 1943), that the results of surgery in the lower limbs are better than that in the upper limbs: the function of lower limbs being not so complicated and exacting.
