Meet Rottana, a two-year-old girl from Cambodia. Rottana lives at home with her sister and her parents. She traveled two hours with her mother to reach our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), for treatment.
Rottana received a poorly administered injection in each thigh when she was six months old. This caused bilateral quadriceps fibrosis, which means that she can’t bend her legs or walk easily. Her knees are stiff because of the contracted quadriceps muscles.
Surgeons at CSC will perform a quadricepsplasty surgery on the left quadriceps muscle to release the fibrosis. She will be able to bend her leg easily after the operation.
Let’s help Rottana get back on her feet.
