November 27, 2017 (White Plains, NY) – Burke Rehabilitation Hospital has launched a new Outpatient Physician Practice on its White Plains campus (785 Mamaroneck Avenue), providing expanded services and offering the same qualified, compassionate care that Burke is known for. Patients will now be able to schedule appointments with board-certified Burke/Montefiore doctors for a variety of medical conditions requiring physical rehabilitation in an outpatient setting.
“Burke is responding to the growing need for outpatient services by offering patients comprehensive medical evaluations and treatment with the same level of patient-centered care that Burke has been providing for over a century,” said Jeffrey Menkes, Burke’s President and CEO.
The Burke/Montefiore physician practice team will be comprised of doctors able to treat and manage complications related to stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury, cardiac disease, pulmonary disease, orthopedic surgery, amputations, musculoskeletal disorders, chronic pain, dementia, arthritis and other debilitating conditions that do not need to be treated in a hospital.
“Burke’s renowned outpatient physicians can work in coordination with Burke’s inpatient and outpatient treatment teams or a patient’s current physician to develop an individualized treatment plan to optimize recovery in the shortest time period possible,” added Menkes.
These physicians have expertise in a wide variety of specialties, including pain injections, EMG and other diagnostic testing, general physiatry, interventional spine treatments, neuro-rehabilitation, oncological rehabilitation, orthopedic rehabilitation, prosthetics and orthotics and sports rehabilitation. The practice brings together these renowned physicians in one convenient setting, making it easier for patients to have access to world-class outpatient care close to home.
