A Medical Home for All Ages
Today, there are two to three times as many adults as children with cerebral palsy (CP). Historically, doctors focusing on pediatric medicine have provided care to people with CP, but as these patients move through adolescence and into adulthood, they are faced with new and emerging health issues that often require specialized care: pain management, mobility problems, and aging-related conditions. The Weinberg Family Cerebral Palsy Center at Columbia University Irving Medical Center serves as a medical home for patients of all ages through integrated, coordinated, and continuous care across the life span by physicians from more than twenty specialties.
The Weinberg Cerebral Palsy Center offers a comprehensive, holistic approach to meet the healthcare needs of the growing adult CP population, with an emphasis on facilitating the often-difficult medical transition from adolescence into adulthood. The Center was established in January 2013, and made possible by a generous donation from Debby and Peter Weinberg and their families. Through its clinical services, education, and research programs, the Center strives to create a patient care model for people with CP, and fulfill the need for lifelong, comprehensive care for those of all ages living with cerebral palsy.
The Weinberg Family Cerebral Palsy Center is a part of Columbia University Irving Medical Center and NewYork-Presybeterian and currently accepting new patients of all ages. The Center is located in the Department of Orthopedics in the Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of NewYork-Presybeterian but many of the specialties that are a part of our care coordination network are located within other parts of the medical campus.
