Programs and Services

Our rehabilitation team coordinates your child’s treatment. A physician specializing in pediatric rehabilitation medicine − called a pediatric physiatrist − will be your child’s team leader. With your input, the team will coordinate a wide range of medical, therapeutic and supportive services for your child in both the inpatient and outpatient settings.

Our inpatient pediatric rehabilitation unit in the Division of Rehabilitation Medicine is accredited by the Joint Commission. Since 1997, we have been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). In 2018, in addition to being accredited for our comprehensive integrated inpatient rehabilitation, pediatric specialty care program and brain injury specialty program, we also received accreditation for our cancer specialty and interdisciplinary pain specialty program. We are the first in the world to have a CARF accredited pediatric cancer specialty program, and the second in the world to have an interdisciplinary pain specialty program.

We provide outpatient rehab services for a wide range of patients with congenital and acquired conditions that result in childhood disability. From the child or adolescent with severe disability to the fully functional patient with musculoskeletal complaints, we can provide care for any patient.

Our outpatient setting provides unique procedures including nerve blocks (botulinum toxin and phenol injections), acupuncture, baclofen pump management, and electrodiagnostic testing which includes electromyogram (EMG) and nerve conduction studies. Our outpatient clinics also help families coordinate special therapy programs and medical equipment needs.

The following clinics are staffed by Rehabilitation Medicine doctors:
