The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Montefiore

Did you Know?

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R)—or Physiatry (pronounced Phys-eye-ah-tree)—is a branch of medicine that focuses on restoring function and quality of life for people suffering from either permanent or temporary physical and cognitive deficits due to injury, birth defects, chronic disorders or disease.

Our PM&R Physicians, called physiatrists, are experts in the nerves, bones, ligaments, tendons and other musculoskeletal and neuromuscular structures. They have an intricate understanding of the ways in which problems in our organ systems can impede movement and mobility.

The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Montefiore is one of the largest and most esteemed in the tri-state area. Creating and/or restoring optimal function and autonomy for our patients lies at the heart of what we do.

Our specialists use a patient-centered, whole-body approach to develop highly individualized treatment plans that maximize mobility, agility and independence. Our goal is for you to return to a physical state that will allow you to participate actively at home, work and in the community so that you can enjoy your life to the fullest.
