English family travels to St. Louis for high-profile surgery

ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- A family from England is in St. Louis so their son can have potentially life-changing surgery.

Five-year-old Thomas Bussey suffers from a form of cerebral palsy that leaves him in constant pain.

He also spends most of his day in a wheelchair.

An operation at St. Louis Children’s Hospital is expected to drastically improve the function in his legs, and leave him pain free.

“Finally thomas is going to get the future that was taken away from him when he was born,” said his mother Jodie. “Dr. Park is giving back to him.“

The family found out about the surgery through Facebook.
