» Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
The Division of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Children's Hospital of Michigan at the Detroit Medical Center specializes in the rehabilitation and medical management of children with brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, neuromuscular disorders and musculoskeletal conditions. Our physicians understand how cognitive and physical impairments affect growth and development. They use this knowledge to work with patients and their families to develop individualized treatment plans to restore or improve function and quality of life.
The physicians on staff provide evaluations and continuity care to patients in the outpatient clinic setting including the Myelomeningocele/Spinal cord injury clinic, MDA clinic, Developmental Assessment Clinic, inpatient consultations, and on the inpatient rehabilitation unit. Our physicians also participate on the trauma team. They work closely with a multidisciplinary team including therapists, nursing, orthotists, prosthetists, psychology, social work and dietitians. They also collaborate with neurosurgery, neurology, orthopedics, and genetics on a regular basis. The physicians provide alcohol blocks, botulinum toxin injections and an intrathecal baclofen pump program.
Some common conditions pediatric physiatrists treat are: cerebral palsy, spina bifida, spinal cord injuries, neuromuscular disorders, acquired brain injuries including concussion, limb deficiencies, gait abnormalities, musculoskeletal conditions, brachial plexus injuries, and torticollis.
A friendly child-centered atmosphere is provided dedicated to helping children be comfortable during their outpatient visits.
Locations: Canton, Clinton Township, and Detroit.
