Weinberg, Nancy
Rehabilitation Literature, v45 n1-2 p12-15 Jan-Feb 1984
Interviews conducted with 30 disabled adults having varying degrees of orthopedic and spinal cord disabilities, deafness, and severe visual impairments revealed that 50 percent of the congenitally disabled would choose surgery guaranteed to completely cure the disability, and 50 percent opted for no surgery, fearing change in their satisfying status.
