Rehabilitation specialists at The Miriam Hospital 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.
In 2004, The Miriam Hospital opened its 6,000 square foot state-of-the-art Outpatient Rehabilitation Center at 195 Collyer Street near the hospital.
