Orthopedic Rehabilitation

The MedStar Orthopaedic Institute is proud to offer cutting-edge physical medicine and orthopedic rehabilitation treatments and programs, including physical therapy and occupational therapy, at our clinics and through our partnership with MedStar National Rehabilitation Network (MedStar NRH).

We offer nationally recognized inpatient and outpatient orthopedic rehabilitation services to help you return safely and quickly to the activities you enjoy, following an orthopedic injury or surgery. From ankle sprains, shoulder or knee injuries and joint replacements, to amputations, hip fracture surgeries, cancer surgeries, or multiple orthopaedic traumas, we have a dedicated team of professionals to provide you the best care and experience.

Our team of physical medicine and rehabilitation board-certified physicians, psychologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and therapeutic recreational specialists focuses on restoring your abilities to your highest level of function. A hallmark of our program is early intervention following injury or surgery, helping to ensure you have a speedier recovery with the best possible outcome. Our ability to help you get back to your life faster is enhanced by the use of the most technologically advanced diagnostic and therapeutic equipment.
