Spaulding Rehabilitation is where the pioneers push the frontier of what's possible.
As a world-recognized leader in research and innovative physical medicine and rehabilitation, we believe you deserve methods in rehabilitative care not available anywhere else. That’s what motivates us to be the best. We’re not just researchers in labs, we’re clinicians and therapists who work directly with patients. We understand your needs and carry that knowledge with us as we forge new discoveries.
Combining research and patient care is what sets us apart. This connection shortens the time between discovery of a new technique, therapy or medicine and the moment we can put that discovery into action to help you. In fact, we are currently working on over 100 different research studies.
As the principal teaching hospital of the Harvard Medical School Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, new ideas and a passion for discovery are part of our makeup. This academic affiliation combined with our resources enables us to maintain a vigorous research agenda and operate ongoing clinical trials.
