When a child’s shoulders, arms, forearms, wrists or hands have limited ability, it can have a large impact on his independence and quality of life. Our hand and upper extremity rehabilitation team offers a comprehensive, therapeutic approach to patients, birth to age 21, following surgical and non-surgical intervention. This allows us to reach the highest level of function possible.
Our pediatric-trained therapists are experts who work closely with our team of doctors to ensure continuity of care throughout a patient’s experience. The treatment is adjusted as the patient grows and his needs change. Our therapists’ expertise in working with pediatric patients leads to better outcomes. They treat patients experiencing a variety of issues, including:

- Congenital abnormalities
- Neurological disorders or injuries like stroke, spinal cord injuries or cerebral palsy
