About Our Program:

The Intrathecal Baclofen Program (ITBP) is one of three programs within the Phelps Center for Cerebral Palsy and Neurodevelopmental Medicine.

In this program individuals with severe spastic and dystonic hypertonicity are evaluated for placement and ongoing management of intrathecal baclofen pumps. The ITBP includes pediatric neurosurgery from Johns Hopkins, pediatric nursing, neurodevelopmental pediatrics and physical therapy. Individuals are evaluated in the ITBP for intrathecal baclofen pumps, with pump refills and follow-up provided longitudinally.

Hours of Operation:
