When you're physically impaired by injury or disease, you need the medical expertise of an experienced physiatrist and rehabilitation team to restore mobility and get actual results. Physiatrists are nerve, muscle, and bone experts who treat injuries and illnesses affecting movement. They apply their expertise to develop a comprehensive rehabilitation treatment program for restoring optimal function without surgery.

For over two decades, our physicians have been providing care for physical, social, and emotional needs after injury or disease. Our interdisciplinary team may include professionals such as neurologists, orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, urologists, and non-physician health care professionals such as neuropsychologists, physical therapists, speech therapists, and social workers. The team works closely to coordinate and monitor your progress and care throughout your lifetime.
