After more than three decades of exemplary work at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, Michael Reding, M.D., retired at the end of June. During his tenure, Dr. Reding served as the medical director for Burke’s Stroke Rehabilitation Program and was an associate professor of neurology at Weill Cornell Medical College. He has published comprehensively on medical complications and various treatment strategies for enhancing recovery following a stroke. His articles are recognized widely by his peers and he is renowned for his dedication to his patients and stroke rehabilitation.
Dr. Reding earned his doctorate from Kansas University Medical Center and was a researcher at Cornell University Medical College for Chronic and Degenerative Neurological Disorders. Dr. Reding is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and the American Society of Neurorehabilitation.
Dr. Reding’s leadership and influence enables Burke to continue to be the standard of excellence in both the rehabilitation and research fields, specifically in relationship with stroke patients and their journey to a better quality of life. Although Dr. Reding will continue to be involved with the Burke community, his daily presence and influence will be greatly missed.
The entire Burke community thanks Dr. Reding for his support, leadership and friendship throughout the years, and sincerely wish him the best in all future endeavors.
