Partnership with Blythedale Children’s Hospital

After children with spastic cerebral palsy undergo Selected Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) at Columbia, they may be transferred to Inpatient rehabilitation at Blythedale Children’s Hospital in Valhalla, N.Y. We work with the hospital's staff to provide the appropriate follow-up therapy.

Children recovering from brain injury, brain infection, and stroke may also be transferred to the Brain Injury Unit at Blythedale Children’s Hospital after they are medically stable.

At the Brain Injury Unit, our young patients receive rehabilitation therapy from a ColumbiaDoctors multidisciplinary team comprised of a physiatrist, neurologist, pediatrician, child life specialist / psychiatrist, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech / language therapists, psychologists, and neuropsychologists.

This partnership allows us to provide the best care for children and their families.
