Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in New York
At Weill Cornell Medicine’s physical rehabilitation center in New York City, our physiatrists help patients alleviate back, joint, neck and pelvic pain. We also provide rehabilitation services for those who have sustained sports injuries or who have suffered from neurological disorders, cancer or stroke. We aim to maximize our patients’ function so they can get back to their daily routines and favorite activities.

We offer several treatment and pain management options, including physical, occupational, and speech therapy as well as medications, fluoroscopically guided spine injections and regenerative medicine, an emerging discipline that taps into the body’s natural ability to heal damaged tissue.

We offer outpatient services as well as inpatient rehabilitation for moderate to severe physical limitations in conjunction with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.

Our physicians are also actively developing and researching new, cutting-edge therapies. Through our clinical trials, we can offer access to many treatments that may not be available in other clinical practices or even other academic medical centers.

Weill Cornell Medicine’s physical medicine and rehabilitation program is among the best in the New York metropolitan area and the nation. In partnership with NewYork-Presbyterian — one of the top hospitals in the country and the #1 hospital in New York for 17 years running — our physiatry program is ranked #12 in the nation by U.S. News and World Report. 

Patients who seek care from Weill Cornell Medicine receive personalized treatment plans from our physicians, who collaborate closely with physical and occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, rehabilitation nurses, social workers, recreation therapists and other medical specialists to provide the most comprehensive care possible.

"Dr. Chowdhury is truly exceptional. It's not often I take the time to write reviews on doctor visits, but this one was so uniquely positive that I felt the need. He's extremely knowledgable, professional, approachable and spent more time evaluating my issues and answering questions than any doctor I've seen maybe ever. Truly a fantastic practitioner and so obviously passionate about what he does."

"One of the most caring doctors I have ever come across. He examined me for at least a half hour with the utmost professionalism, care and compassion. Best of all, he actually listened to what I had to say. A rarity in the health profession today. I recommend him highly."
