The Cerebral Palsy Clinic
Our cerebral palsy team includes orthopaedists and physiatrists who work with physical and occupational therapists to design a program of physical therapy and bracing to avoid or postpone surgery when possible.
When necessary, surgical interventions, such as selective dorsal rhizotomy performed by neurosurgeons and Botulinum toxin injection/motor point block by the physiatrists, can be used to treat problems that result from cerebral palsy. We also have a new baclofen pump program to treat spasticity. In addition, our bracing program helps prevent deformity and improves function.
There are several musculoskeletal conditions that can benefit from the services of our skilled cerebral palsy team.
