A Medical Home for All Ages
Today, there are two to three times as many adults as children with cerebral palsy (CP). Adults with CP face unique challenges that often require specialized care: pain management, mobility problems, and aging-related conditions, such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. The Weinberg Family Cerebral Palsy 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.
As part of transitioning teenage patients into adult care, the Center provides education and support programs for family members and loved ones. 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 CP care.
