Why Choose a UI Physiatrist?

The physiatrists at the University of Iowa are specialists in diagnosing and treating problems of the musculoskeletal system.  In addition, if patients need any other services, such as those of a physical therapist or athletic trainer, your physiatrist will supervise, collaborate with and coordinate with other health care professionals. The result is a specially designed treatment program tailored to your needs.

Our physiatrists offer an aggressive, non-surgical approach to pain and injury, making our services the ideal choice for the treatment of a wide variety of diseases and conditions such as those listed below.

Most importantly, our physiatrists treat the whole patient, not just the patient's symptoms. Part of our job is to share medical knowledge to help patients understand their condition and provide the tools and resources to manage it. We employ a variety of treatment methods to reduce or eliminate your problems and to decrease the possibility of a recurrence. This comprehensive approach produces not only cost-effective results, but also a high degree of patient satisfaction.

Through integrated focused care and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment, our physiatrists add quality to the lives of thousands of patients each year.
