Pediatrics at Spaulding Boston OP

As a parent, you want to see your child grow, learn, become independent and thrive. We want that, too. Our outpatient Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine Program offers the latest in evaluation and treatment techniques specifically designed for infants through young adulthood. We provide comprehensive rehabilitation services for infants, children, adolescents and young adults with permanent and temporary disabilities, ranging from severe disabilities to musculoskeletal complaints. We also promote advocacy, education and research for children with special health care needs. We work with you to teach and inspire your child to gain the skills and confidence needed to reach his or her full potential.

Our pediatric rehabilitation programs are more than innovative medical care, research and assessment. Our programs are centered around the recovery and rehabilitation of your child’s unique condition and planned specifically to meet your family’s goals. We understand the important role parents and caregivers have in a child's recovery and we work to foster parents and caregivers active participation during their child's recovery. We practice and value a family-centered philosophy.

Who We Are

Your care team will involve physical therapists, occupational therapists, clinicians and physicians who are all experienced in treating infants, children, and teenagers
