The focus is to minimize and prevent medical complications. Transition of care from pediatric to adult specialists is accomplished seamlessly, providing lifelong follow-up and health promotion.

Outpatient Therapy Program

Our medically supervised outpatient therapy program has two unique therapy options for individuals with chronic spinal cord dysfunction.

Inpatient Program

A comprehensive evaluation and treatment program for children and young adults, ranging in age from birth to 21, with acute or chronic spinal cord dysfunction, including those requiring ventilator assistance. 

During this program, the treatment team, directed by a pediatric physiatrist, evaluates each patient. Based on these initial evaluations, an intensive rehabilitation plan is tailored to the unique needs of each patient and his or her family. Patients in this program receive a minimum of five hours of therapy each day and most receive more.
