About Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a broad term for problems of movement or muscles caused by a brain injury or malformation early in development. The injury or malformation that causes CP is not progressive—that is, it will not worsen over the course of a lifetime. At the same time, unfortunately, the injury is not curable. The effects of cerebral palsy can often be managed with an individualized combination of therapy, medication, assistive technology and/or surgery.

At Columbia Neurosurgery, we provide two types of surgery to help manage the spasticity that can be associated with cerebral palsy.
