The Primary Children's Hospital Rehab Medicine Clinic is a pediatric physical medicine and rehabilitation clinic comprised of an integrated group of physicians who care for children with disabilities and chronic complex diagnoses. We promote the health, well-being and quality of life for children with functional limitations related to congenital or acquired conditions, in a team-based model of value-driven healthcare. 

We take a multidisciplinary approach to care, treating patients while working collaboratively with other specialities including but not limited to orthopedics, neurosurgery, neurology, behavioral health, and the Shriners Gait Lab.

Depending on the complexity of each child's and family needs, we provide a rehabilitation program for general rehabilitation needs, and a comprehensive care program for children with chronic, complex medical conditions. Our team of caregivers can help determine which program is best for your child.
