Orthopedic, Amputation Rehabilitation at Regional Rehabilitation Center

Orthopedic injury or conditions can take on many forms; some require surgical repair or replacement and others require less invasive treatments. Some conditions are a result of a major trauma while others are chronic. At the Owensboro Health Regional Rehabilitation Center the goal for patients suffering from these conditions is to promote maximum function and independence. The team of providers at the Owensboro Health Regional Rehabilitation Center encourages all survivors to begin rehabilitation as soon as their physician feels they are ready.
