The Center for Stroke Rehabilitation at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is devoted to providing the most advanced stroke rehabilitation care and developing innovative, effective treatments for stroke survivors. We are committed to providing state-of-the-art treatments that are not widely available in other centers in the New York metropolitan area, and creating and testing new treatments to improve the lives of individuals living with the after-effects of stroke.
The center offers services at both NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
Acute intensive inpatient rehabilitation is provided at NewYork-Presbyterian’s two Inpatient Rehabilitation Units, the William Randolph Hearst Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center and the Sue and John L. Weinberg Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit located on the 17th floor of the Baker building at the NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
Outpatient rehabilitation physician consultations are available at both campuses by our experienced and nationally recognized physicians specializing in stroke rehabilitation care. Spasticity Management services are also available at both campuses.
Our outpatient services include physical, occupational and speech therapies. Innovative therapies include the use of therapeutic electrical stimulation, robot-assisted rehabilitation, and Modified Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy.
In recent years, several new approaches have been developed in an attempt to improve the use of the arm or leg after stroke. None of these represent a cure, but several can provide meaningful improvements, allowing stroke survivors to increase their use of the affected arm. Some stroke survivors use multiple therapies over the course of recovery. Read more
The Center for Stroke Rehabilitation conducts a variety of studies of new treatments for stroke. Recent or ongoing studies include studies of new robot-assisted treatment for arm weakness after stroke, and new treatments for leg weakness/foot drop.
