About this book

This new edition will grow to three volumes and significantly expand existing sections on medical management of children with cerebral palsy, research, education and therapies.  The first volume will cover the cause of CP, the underlying pathology in the brain and the secondary pathologies in different tissues, such as muscle and bone. There are a fair number of controversies and new techniques, such as PET scans, that are getter attention to make earlier diagnosis. It is still not clear whether early diagnosis makes a long term difference.  Epidemiology will also be discussed.

The second volume will focus on general medical concerns related to CP on each of the medical specialties and the musculoskeletal section - which served as the main focus of the previous edition.  This volume will be updated with an emphasis on gait disorders, spasticity, seizures and movement disorders.  New research and techniques on the hip and spine areas will be added as well.

The third and final volume will be an expanded and comprehensive resource on therapies.  More detail on the latest outcome research and techniques will be provided along with sections on orthotics and novel treatments and techniques.

This reference work will build on gaps within the first edition and continue to be the definitive guide for rehabilitation physicians, orthopedics, neurologists and therapists who treat children with CP

For the past 25 years, Dr. Miller has held Adjunct Professor appointments in the Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Physical Education at the University of Delaware. He is also a member of the University BIOMS program, which is an interdisciplinary graduate program in biomedical engineering. Current and past research interests include investigation of surgical outcomes of CP surgery through gait analysis, mathematical modeling of the hip joint in children with CP, hip monitoring and management for children with CP, and management of spinal deformity in CP.
Dr. Miller has published approximately 200 articles in peer-reviewed journals. He has been invited to give many lectures in over 35 different countries. As a coauthor with Dr. Bachrach, he published a book Cerebral Palsy: A Guide for Caregiving directed at families and nonmedical care providers, which was published in 1995, second edition in 2006, and in 2017 was revised and released as the third edition. A medical textbook, Cerebral Palsy, with 1080 pages outlining musculoskeletal care of the child with cerebral palsy, was written by Dr. Miller and published in 2005 by Springer-Verlag

She has many years of experience in the Gait Analysis Laboratory and in Nemours Biomedical Research, where she collaborates with Dr. O ’Neil. Ms. Lennon has a Bachelor of Science degree in physical therapy from the University of Delaware and a Master of Science degree from Hahnemann University. She has 30 years of clinical experience in working with children and families affected by cerebral palsy, 15 years of experience conducting clinical research, and 5 years of experience coordinating family engagement and advisory activities at the hospital.

Margaret E. O ’Neil is a Professor in the Programs in Physical Therapy, Department of Rehabilitation and Regenerative Medicine at Columbia University, Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons. She conducts research, advises graduate students, and teaches content in pediatric physical therapy and research. She has received grant funding from several federal and professional organizations.
