An 11-year-old girl with cerebral palsy, known to you for the past 5 years, presents with 6 months of worsening pain and rigidity of her upper extremities. Her parents find it nearly impossible to dress her in the morning without pain medication and state that although her dose of oral baclofen was increased almost 9 months ago, they have not noticed any improvement. They are intrigued by the prospect of surgical therapies that could relieve their daughter of daily challenges.
