Hi!
Actually, this is a very tough decision as doctors have mixed opinions about the efficacy of stem cells in treating CP. While there is a general consensus that stem cells benefit in acute brain injuries, many doctors feel that they do not have any role to play in chronic scenarios such as CP.
In your case it would be best to join a support group in your area, meet neurologists, join support group online, find information about clinical trials on stem cell research in CP and gather information from there. Hope this helps. Take care!
