The Golisano Restorative Neurology & Rehabilitation Center is a nationally recognized brain injury rehabilitation program. Our exceptional, compassionate treatment helps patients and families rebuild their lives.
Patients who have suffered a traumatic or acquired brain injury may experience difficulty with language, thinking skills, swallowing, movement, balance, getting in and out of bed, walking, dressing, bathing and other daily living skills. These difficulties are directly related to the size and location of the brain injury.
We treat patients with brain injuries (both open and closed) due to:
- Cerebral hemorrhage
- Oxygen deprivation (anoxia or hypoxia)
Our compassionate team will provide a thorough evaluation and an individualized treatment plan to address each patient's specific challenges. We also offer educational resources for patients and families. Our goal is to help restore function so that they can continue to work toward their highest level of independence.
Of course, treatment may continue following discharge, if necessary. We assist patients and families through every step in their recovery.
A stroke can be a life-changing event. We offer an individualized stroke rehabilitation program that combines state-of-the-art therapies with compassionate care — all designed to help patients achieve their potential and regain their quality of life.
Our team helps patients restore their abilities and independence in areas such as: language, cognitive changes, swallowing, one-sided weakness and inattention, sensory changes, moving in bed, walking, balancing, dressing, bathing and other daily living skills.
Our therapists work with patients to both restore function and teach new ways of doing things.
For more information on our comprehensive stroke care, see the Rochester Regional Stroke Center at Unity.
When patients have a serious medical condition, their body can lose its strength and stamina. The path to recovery often involves rehabilitation to help them move beyond physical weakness.
Our medical providers coordinate care with our highly trained therapy staff to ensure that patients take a comprehensive approach to return to health and function. We often see patients with:
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS)
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
- Cerebral Palsy (CP)
Golisano Rehabilitation Center offers the only pediatric rehabilitation of its kind
in Western New York! We understand the unique needs of children — and their families — and our team is with you every step of the way to recovery.
Our experienced, caring pediatric rehabilitation team provides consultation and treatment for a wide range of neurological and orthopaedic conditions. Our safe, comfortable, friendly environment is specially designed for children, so that we can provide the emotional and physical support they need as they face the challenges of rehabilitation. A parent or adult caregiver may stay overnight with the child to further support their needs and those of their family.
Our physicians, neuropsychologists, and our entire therapeutic team work closely with the entire family and the child’s pediatrician to coordinate the specific services that the child needs. We will even work with school districts to provide education and information regarding recommended accommodations as the child prepares to return to school. Our neuropsychologist and therapists can also attend CSE meetings to help facilitate the child’s individual education plan (IEP).
After discharge, we can continue to work with the school or other therapy providers on the child’s education. Our goal is to ensure that each child has the services they need to function to the best of their abilities at home, in school and in the community.
