Super-cute Kai Hodgkinson underwent selective dorsal rhizotomy after his family raised £43,000 to pay for the surgery and aftercare.
A five-year-old Spider-Man fan with cerebral palsy is finally able to move like his hero after undergoing a life-changing operation to improve his mobility.
Cute Kai Hodgkinson woke up after the surgery and asked: “Can I climb yet?”
And now the schoolboy has astounded his parents and doctors after achieving his little lifetime ambition – just two weeks after having the operation.
Delighted Kai is now demonstrating his new found skills in the Spider-Man outfit he was given as a present by nurses – and climbing the stairs at home.
Proud dad, healthcare assistant Brian Roberts, 37, said: “Kai’s cerebral palsy only really affects him physically.
“If you walked into a room and he was sat on the floor he could be chatting away and you wouldn’t know any different, but now he has had this operation he can do anything.”
