Hereby paper presents our own experiences and results of adductor tenotomy with obturator neurectomy at 33 spastic hips in 21 cerebral palsy children. In the case of six children the purpose of the study was the reposition of unstable hips and in other children the dislocation prophylactics. All children presented stable improvement of hips abduction and easier joint movement. In the case of four children the maintaining of the reposition was not obtained. After the average time of observation equaled 11 months the improvement of femoral head migration index in ten out of sixteen hip joints was perceived.
