Influence of gait analysis on decision-making for lower extremity orthopaedic surgery
Gait analysis is a specialized medical technology used to evaluate patients with complex walking problems such as children with cerebral palsy. Gait analysis is often performed prior to surgery to help decide which surgical procedures should be included in a multi-level surgical plan. Although gait analysis allows for a more accurate assessment of gait deviations than visual gait assessment, the use of gait analysis in clinical care remains controversial.
