Rehabilitation Medicine

Rehabilitation medicine is an integral part of your progress toward optimal mobility and independence after surgery or an injury.

At University Health, we have several physiatrists on our rehabilitation team. A physiatrist is a medical doctor or a doctor of osteopathic medicine who specializes in rehabilitation.

Specialty Trained Doctors

All physiatrists are UT Health providers, and are board-certified in rehabilitation medicine specialty. These physiatrists have additional specialty disease specific expertise and research interests that bring evidence-based care into our clinic.

You could see a physiatrist on an outpatient basis based on a referral from either a primary care physician or another specialist. You might also see a physiatrist if you are admitted in the hospital if a consultation is requested by the primary team taking care of you. Either way, the physiatrists will create a plan of care and make rehabilitation recovery related recommendations to assist in your recovery.

We’re certain you will appreciate the personalized care you get from a familiar team of providers who knows you and your family.
