Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Physical medicine and rehabilitation focuses on restoring the health and functional abilities of people after illness or injury, such as a stroke, spinal cord injury, heart surgery, amputation, joint replacement, sports injuries, spinal disorders and other conditions.

Our rehabilitation team consists of rehabilitation doctors (physiatrists), rehabilitation therapists (physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists), rehabilitation psychologists and psychiatrists, rehabilitation nurses, and a variety of other specialists who work together to help you get back on your feet.

Our specialty is not what we do to people but what we do with them! We work with you to develop a custom treatment plan that will help you get back to the life you enjoy.
