Cerebral Palsy Procedures

Our cerebral palsy neurosurgeons offer the latest techniques and approaches for children who need surgery for cerebral palsy. Read more about these treatments in the Health section:
  • Baclofen Pump

    A baclofen pump delivers a muscle relaxant directly into the cerebrospinal fluid, which helps manage muscle stiffness and spasms better than with baclofen taken by mouth.

  • Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy

    Selective dorsal rhizotomy is a way to reduce muscle spasms and stiffness by cutting some of the sensory nerve fibers that carry sensation from the muscles to the spinal cord.
