Spasticity Surgery Program
Spasticity is an abnormal velocity-dependent increase in muscle tone. In adults, spasticity may develop as a result of childhood cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, demyelinating disease, and stroke. The Adult Spasticity Surgery Program combines expertise in the Department of Neurosurgery, the Department of Neurology, and the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation to provide state-of-the-art therapies to patients with this disabling neurological problem. Approaches to spasticity include oral medications, physical therapy, intrathecal baclofen therapy, and occasionally open surgery.
