The goal of our Orthopedic Rehabilitation Program is to return you home ready to resume an active, productive lifestyle following orthopedic injury or surgery.
Most of our patients return home within one or two weeks. We serve patients with diagnoses such as unilateral and bilateral knee replacements, unilateral and bilateral hip replacements, hip resurfacing, lower extremity fracture, and multiple traumas.
Within a safe, secure and structured environment, you will receive intensive therapy six times a week. Rehabilitation nursing and access to a physician is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Throughout your treatment, the entire team meets formally on a regular basis to discuss your progress. Family members and caregivers are encouraged to attend and participate in treatment sessions and patient care as appropriate. You will receive ongoing training from each discipline throughout your stay in order to achieve your goals.
The Orthopedic Program philosophy is that comprehensive rehabilitation can best be achieved through an interdisciplinary team approach. The core team consists of:
- Individual with an orthopedic injury
- Individual’s family and caregivers
- Occupational Therapy
- Physical Therapy
- Rehabilitation Nursing
- Social Work/Case Management
Our goal-oriented approach is to get you back home to Stony Brook University, NY leading the life you love, as quickly as possible.
