Playing a Critical Role in Your Recovery
Rehabilitation specialists at each of our hospitals work with orthopedic patients and their doctors, sometimes after surgery, sometimes to prevent the need for surgery.
Therapists help restore function in damaged joints, improve mobility, relieve pain and work to prevent or limit permanent disability. Whether or not you require surgery, experts in rehabilitation can play a major role in allowing you to live more comfortably and recover more fully.
