Channey is a bright 7-year-old girl from Cambodia in the 2nd grade. She has two brothers and one sister. Channey likes to stay at home, watch TV, and read her school books. Channey’s family knew about CSC because Channey’s aunt was treated here before. She traveled for three hours with her mother to reach CSC for treatment.
Channey has a contracture in her right hip. This makes it difficult for her to walk and she is in pain. She was treated at a private clinic in her province, but it did not relieve her of her symptoms.
For $425, surgeons at CSC will perform a quadricepsplasty to release the contracted muscle and allow Channey to walk easily.
