Comprehensive Care You Won't Outgrow

Transitional Age and Adult Care

Coordination and Continuity of Care

The Weinberg Family Cerebral Palsy Center is the only dedicated transitional care program for CP on the East Coast and one of just several such centers in the nation. We are committed to providing families with a bridge of care for a lifetime.

Historically, cerebral palsy (CP) information and treatment have focused on children, but approximately 90 percent of those diagnosed with the condition now live into adulthood. Our mission is to help people with CP of all ages optimize the way they manage the effects of their condition.

Our center provides the coordination and continuity necessary to ease the transition of teenage patients into adult care. 

A growing network of Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) physicians from many specialties, including rehabilitation and regenerative medicine, neurology, dentistry, and urology, provide comprehensive care to our patients as they transition into adult care and throughout adulthood. We are providing care you won't ever outgrow.

Transition of Care

We are here to meet the needs of our patients, especially during the critical period of transitioning from adolescence into adulthood.
