After an illness or injury, your body may not be able to function the way that it used to.
A stroke or brain injury can make it difficult for you to talk or swallow. A burn or fracture can make movement painful. Even an illness or disorder such as arthritis can make it difficult for you to take care of yourself.
We know that you want to return to a normal life, with as much function as possible. We can help.
Our doctors of physical medicine and rehabilitation—physiatrists—are specially trained in rehabilitation and will work with your medical team to evaluate your problem, provide the services you require, and monitor your progress.
The physicians and staff in the Physical Medicine department work with patients as they make the transition from the acute, inpatient care setting of the hospital back to their homes.
