Our interdisciplinary team works with patients ranging from pediatric (3 months of age and older) to geriatric. We help patients who have a wide variety of neurological conditions, including:
- Brain Injury Rehabilitation
- Stroke Rehabilitation
- Comprehensive Medical Rehabilitation
- Pediatric Rehabilitation
While each treatment plan is customized for the patient’s specific needs, they can expect to have at least three hours of therapy five days per week.
Depending on their diagnosis, patients receive care under one of our carefully designed, fully integrated and accredited programs.
Brain injury Rehabilitation
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:
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.
- Cerebral hemorrhage
- Oxygen deprivation (anoxia or hypoxia)
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.

Comprehensive Medical Rehabilitation
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)
Rochester Regional 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.
