Compassionate Care, Comprehensive Treatment

Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common physical disability in the United States and the world, and an estimated two in every 1,000 people in the United States manifest one or more of the symptoms of cerebral palsy.

As a main referral center and one of the few programs in the country to offer a dedicated spasticity clinic, Boston Children’s Hospital's Cerebral Palsy Program provides interdisciplinary evaluation and treatment for more than 2,500 patients each year. 

At Boston Children's Cerebral Palsy Program, patients can see several providers in one day, which makes managing care easier on families and more collaborative for your child’s doctors. Our experts have extensive experience in treating all spectrums of the disorder—from ambulant, high-functioning children to non-ambulant children with multiple medical issues, the latter benefit especially from our complex care physicians.

Each of our patients has access to off-site cerebral palsy gait analysis, which involves the use of multiple cameras to measure a child’s gait-pattern development, ultimately helping to determine the most appropriate surgical treatments.

Our specialists are proud to provide compassionate care in a patient-centered atmosphere, and work to maximize each child’s functional independence, stability and quality of life, ultimately transitioning care into adulthood.
