What is Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation?

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, also know as Physiatry or simply Rehabilitation Medicine, works to restore/enhance quality of life and functional ability to those with physical impairments or disabilities affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, tendons, muscles and ligaments. Unlike other medical specialties, Physiatry has a goal to maximize independence, daily living and improve an overall quality of life.

Dr. Kotton is an expert in designing comprehensive, patient-centered treatment plans using time-tested treatments to maximize quality of life for patients who can range in age from infants to octogenarians.
