A baclofen pump is a device that is used to provide a continuous infusion of baclofen.
A baclofen pump is usually used when oral medication has not helped enough to reduce muscle spasticity.
Your child may go home when he / she is drinking well, able to sit up comfortably and pain is under good control. Physical therapy staff may be asked to see your child for assistance with mobility / wheelchair adjustment.
The rehabilitation staff may adjust the pump dose of baclofen before your child goes home.
Your child will come to the Neurosurgery Clinic about two weeks after going home. A member of your healthcare team will check your child’s incisions during this visit. Your child will come to the rehabilitation clinic so the team can check on how well your child is responding to the pump and:
