Clinical Studies and Research

Groundbreaking treatments start here.

Research is integral to the Spasticity and Movement Disorders Clinic of Children’s Hospital's Brain Care Institute. Due to the success of clinical investigations, such as those involving intrathecal baclofen therapy and deep brain stimulation, many children who live with movement disorders have experienced a dramatic improvement in the quality of their lives.

Most of our staff members participate in ongoing research projects, in addition to treating children. Elizabeth C. Tyler-Kabara, MD, PhD, director of the Spasticity and Movement Disorders Clinic, devotes a portion of her time to research on the recovery of function.
