Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
Maximizing Quality of Life
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) is a medical specialty focused on the prevention, diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of disorders associated with disability, such as cancer. Our specialists provide assessment and treatment of cancer-related loss of function, pre-treatment and pre-surgery rehabilitation and conditioning, as well as conservative management of musculoskeletal pain and spasticity management.
Our goal is to restore optimal patient functioning in multiple life dimensions, including medical, social, emotional and vocational.
