Dr. Tracy Friedlander | Neurological Rehabilitation

>>My name is Tracy Friedlander. I am a medical doctor. I am a clinical associate in the Department of Physical
Medicine and Rehabilitation. I’m also associate director of the Residency Program in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. My specialty consists of in-patient comprehensive rehabilitation for a variety of medical issues as well as neurologic conditions such as spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury and stroke as well as multiple other
complex neurologic conditions. My out-patient clinic primarily focuses on spasticity management which is the uncontrolled
muscle contractions that oftentimes go along
with neurologic conditions. I became interested in physical medicine and rehabilitation growing up as a dancer. It made me acutely aware of the way the body moves and I’ve been able to incorporate that interest into learning function and its affect on health. My philosophy of patient care is about treating the patient as a whole. That includes incorporating
their family, their community, their home environment
into their wellbeing. I particularly enjoy
working with the therapists, nurses, case managers and all of our staff to ensure that patients have the most optimal recovery. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and I look forward to treating you. What we do in PMNR is all focused about somebody’s function, so whether it’s getting in and out of bed or walking around the community, everything is aimed at making
their day-to-day life better. I enjoy working with the Residency Program because not only does it
help me to stay on top of my own knowledge but it helps me to build a
new generation of doctors who can shape the vision
of physical medicine and rehabilitation for the future. I particularly enjoy this program because it’s one the best
hospitals in the country and we have some of the most
outstanding physical medicine and rehabilitation
candidates to work with. Please feel free to contact
me if you have any questions related to my practice. I look forward to helping
you in the future. Okay, yeah, yeah. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and if you should need treatment, I look forward to caring
for you and your loved ones.
