The program is designed to provide you with an individualized treatment plan to maximize your independence, with the goal of helping you achieve your fullest potential.

Who Can Benefit From Inpatient Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Patients who benefit from orthopedic rehabilitation services may have had significant loss of function to two or more extremities, suffered a major musculoskeletal trauma, experienced major joint replacement, or have an autoimmune or related systemic condition or other orthopedic diagnoses.

Our patients are recovering from conditions such as:

  • Total joint replacement(s)

  • Degenerative joint disease

In addition, our team of clinicians collaborate with your surgical team to maximize your functional independence with a focus to get you home.

What to Expect

Patients admitted to participate in inpatient orthopedic rehabilitation work closely with a multidisciplinary rehabilitation team to become as mobile and independent as possible. Our care team helps you to take an active role in your treatment plan and partner with you to achieve recovery goals through every stage of rehabilitation.
