MANHASSET, NY – An outpatient rehabilitation hub will be created on Oct. 6 when the North Shore-LIJ Health System moves its Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation outpatient practice to 1554 Northern Blvd. in Manhasset, the health system announced today.
The facility is moving from 825 Northern Blvd., Great Neck.
The site already houses the health system’s Transitions of Long Island, an outpatient rehabilitation program for those recovering from a brain injury, and its Manhasset branch of STARS (Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation Services), which provides physical therapy for a wide variety of musculoskeletal, orthopedic and neurologic conditions.
“The relocation of our physiatrists to the new location will facilitate enhanced collaborative treatment of patients who require care from multiple rehabilitation professionals,” said Adam Stein, MD, chair of the health system’s Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. “Being at the same site will allow us to easily and regularly communicate with all members of the rehabilitation team”.
Specializing in neurological disorders, such as stroke, spinal cord injury and brain injury, as well as spine care, cancer rehabilitation, amputation and limb deficiency treatment and treatment of a wide variety of musculoskeletal disorders, the practice will also provides electrodiagnostic testing, diagnostic and therapeutic musculoskeletal ultrasound, botulinum toxin injections and baclofen pump therapy for spasticity management.
In addition to Dr. Stein, the practice includes five other physicians from the health system’s department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation: Matthew Shatzer, DO; Susan Maltser, DO, Anthony Oreste, MD, Renee Enriquez, MD and Sarah Khan, DO.
