Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
Physiatrists are experts in the effects of medical problems and disease on a person’s ability to function. They are medical doctors who have completed training in the specialty of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. They are trained to have a clear understanding of how the musculoskeletal system and neurological system work, and use this expertise to help patients regain function after illness or injury.
New England Baptist Hospital Spine Center physiatrists are national leaders in developing new standards of care for spinal disorders. They are considered a valuable asset by the region’s medical community, and are asked to consult on difficult cases from all over New England. Additionally, they host physicians and rehabilitation experts from around the world to share the most up-to-date findings and teach the latest methods.
At the NEBH Spine Center, our physiatrists have seen over 50,000 new patients. Through education and effective treatments, these patients found what they needed to get their lives back. Their satisfaction with care is reflected in their constant referral of family members and friends to our center.
