The traumatic brain injury (TBI) and neurorehabilitation programs of The Sandra and Malcolm Berman Brain & Spine Institute offer comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for those with neurologic or orthopedic diseases.
The Brain & Spine Institute provides the full spectrum of rehabilitation services — from intensive inpatient rehabilitation for those who are recovering from brain injury to regular outpatient treatment for those recovering from stroke.
No matter the diagnosis, our goal is to restore physical and cognitive function to the maximum level, to address the psychological effects of impairments and disabilities, and to enable patients to quickly return to their daily activities.
