Mount Sinai Rehabilitation Medicine Faculty Practice
The Rehabilitation Medicine faculty practice is staffed by physiatrists (physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians) who provide services for individuals disabled by spinal cord injury, stroke, brain injury, or various neuro-musculoskeletal conditions, including neck and back disorders. In addition, we also provide specialized therapy for sports- and work-related injuries, as well as a variety of pain management therapies. Our doctors also specialize in neuropsychologic testing and specific interventions for persons with cognitive/behavioral deficits due to a range of causes. The practice offers access to a variety of programs that promote self-sufficiency, improve quality of life, and enhance the ability to return to community life as quickly as possible.
Mount Sinai's Department of Rehabilitation Medicine consistently ranks among the nation's top 20 rehabilitation centers according to U.S. News & World Report. The National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research also designated Mount Sinai as a model system of care for spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury, the only programs to receive such designation in New York State. The Spinal Cord Injury and the Traumatic Brain Injury Programs also are the only programs of their kind in New York City accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). Every physiatrist in the practice is a staff member of the Mount Sinai Hospital and the Icahn School of Medicine.
