Welcome to the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine!
We are a vibrant, energetic and growing academic department at the University of Kansas School of Medicine. Our primary mission is to restore function and decrease pain in patients afflicted with the entire spectrum of musculoskeletal and neurologic disorders. Our aim is to integrate our clinical mission with cutting-edge research and educational programs.
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation specialists (“physiatrists”) often evaluate and manage patients with joint or back pain, spasticity, sports injuries, stroke, traumatic brain injury and amputations. Often, we utilize medications, therapies, and cutting edge non-surgical interventions such as pain procedures or joint injections. If you are a prospective patient please call to learn more about our service or to set up an appointment with one of our physicians.
