Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Heakyung Kim, MD
Chief, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Physical medicine and rehabilitation focus on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders that involve the nerves, muscles, and bones, or conditions affecting the brain. Rehabilitation physicians, also called physiatrists, treat disorders or injuries that affect movement, with the goal of improving function and quality of life.

Pediatric rehabilitation is critically important for children with physical challenges to help them grow and develop into adulthood and live full and independent lives. The Pediatric Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation service at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital provides care for children of all ages with neurological, musculoskeletal, or other disorders, featuring a team of experts with specialized training in the rehabilitation of children.

Our pediatric rehabilitation specialists have unique training to assess your child's individual needs, create a personalized program of care, and monitor your child as he or she grows to ensure that the care plan is continually adapted to his or her development. We work closely with you and your family to make sure the physical and emotional needs of your child are met. The goal of our team is to improve the quality of life of your child and your family.
