Cerebral palsy refers to a condition that affects muscle movement. The muscles of some children with cerebral palsy are stiff and rigid and may have trouble controlling reflexes. This is known as spasticity.
We work closely with pediatricians and specialists to determine the best treatment for children with spasticity. We offer surgical intervention that includes placement of a baclofen pump or selective dorsal rhizotomy. The goal of either of these procedures is to help reduce spasticity.
