Why Physiatry

The Hospital for Special Surgery defines a physiatrist as a provider who specializes in the practice of physical medicine and rehabilitation. Physiatrists are trained to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal and/or neurological conditions.

Physiatrists different from Orthopedic Surgeons in their approach to treating injuries and illnesses. An Orthopedic Surgeon uses surgery to address the ailment or injury, whereas a Physiatrist uses non-surgical methods. A Physiatrist combines minimally invasive treatments with medically supervised exercise therapies, medication, and orthotics to treat patients--all without the need for surgery.

Undergoing surgery is a major decision. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Cyril to learn if he can develop a program for your injury or illness that is non-surgical.
