Ans-

Absolutely not!
We have just explained to you the process of generation of tightness in the muscles, so children whenever they gain height are prone to getting shorter muscles they keep on adding height in boys upto the age of 14-15 in boys and upto 10/11 in girls ,but the major growth ends by the age of 9/10 so ideally we should not do surgery before 9/10 in children with cerebral palsy as they are doomed to having greater potential of failure and or major weakness
We now have better methods in our fight against spasticity than surgery
The only 2 surgeries that can be done before the child is 10 are:

1) the adductor tenotomies/ lengthening for scissoring during standing/walking
2) the pronator lengthening or transfer in the arm to allow children to show their palm
