Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, also known as PHYSIATRY, is a specialty in modern medicine that adds quality of life to patient care. Rehabilitation is the combined and coordinated use of medical, social, educational and vocational measures for training and re-training an individual to the highest possible level of functional ability. Rehabilitation in our institute works at three levels, namely outpatient services, inpatient services and cross consultations for patients who had undergone orthopedic, neuro surgery, general surgery or cardiac interventions or any patient with rehabilitation needs who is admitted under other departments.
