Thanks to a collaborative effort between official bodies and civil society, 43 children and teenagers suffering from spastic cerebral palsy have undergone successful surgery. This condition typically affects the movement of hands and feet. The innovative surgical method used has, in many cases, improved the patients' independence and potentially their ability to walk.

The surgeries took place at the Jesús Kumate Rodríguez hospital in Cancún, Quintana Roo. Patients from the municipalities of Bacalar, Othon P. Blanco, Benito Juárez, Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Tulum, Cozumel, and Solidaridad were treated during the Third Gradual Fibrotomy Surgery Event. This event showcased the use of the Ulzibat Method, an innovative surgical technique.

The MGAS Foundation A.C., an organization dedicated to supporting children in extreme poverty with cerebral palsy or other spastic conditions, was instrumental in the event. They facilitate assessments and treatments using the Gradual Muscular Fibrotomy technique, with the ultimate goal of improving the patients' quality of life.
