Specialized Therapy Programs

We recognize the unique needs of our patients and offer many specialized programs to meet them.  

Traumatic Brain Injury
If you or someone you love has had a brain injury, you may feel overwhelmed by the uncertainty of the recovery process. The brain affects everything a person does. And because no two brain injuries are alike, it's difficult to know what lasting effects the injury may have.  With so much at stake, you want to know you or your loved one receives the best care.

The Brain Injury Unit at the WellSpan Surgery & Rehabilitation Hospital features a secure eight-bed unit for individuals that have sustained a traumatic brain injury.  The dedicated treatment team recognizes that each injury survivor is unique, with distinct symptoms and challenges.  The multidisciplinary team focuses on functional assessment, therapeutic intervention and community reintegration to help each patient reach their goals and realize their full potential.  The team utilizes the following interventions in the treatment of brain injury patients:

  • Specialized vision testing and consultation with a behavioral optometrist to address any visual problems as a result of brain injury
  • Specialized speech language services
  • Balance and mobility training with specialized equipment 
  • Specialized equipment to address arm and hand use, coordination and integration of cognitive and motor function

Amputee Rehabilitation
People can lose all or part of an arm or leg for a number of reasons. An amputation may be the result of a traumatic injury, it may be a planned operation to prevent the spread of the disease or it may be the result of a birth defect.  Whatever the case, an amputation can cause a sense of uncertainty and confusion in patients and their families. 

Getting you, or your loved one, back to daily life following limb amputation is the goal of the WellSpan Surgery & Rehabilitation Hospital’s Amputee Program.  Our multidisciplinary team is trained in the specific needs of upper and lower extremity amputees and will help you recognize and attain your full potential after limb loss.

Our therapy team focuses on helping you gain independence after limb loss through:

  • Proper wound healing
  • Development of the best treatment plan to reduce your pain.  
  • Social/emotional management 
  • Education for you and your family to optimally prepare for and/or use a prosthesis

We provide each patient with an individualized treatment plan based on a comprehensive evaluation by expert professionals and through a network of clinical and technical resources.  Your treatment plan will be developed based on your stage of adapting to limb loss.  A prosthesis will be available to assist during any phase of rehabilitation.

  • Post-operative phase – initial phase of healing and rehabilitation after amputation
  • Pre-prosthetic training phase – the phase to prepare residual limb and entire body for prosthetic use
  • Prosthetic training – phase to return to independence in life with use of a prosthesis

Stroke Rehabilitation
The multidisciplinary team at the WellSpan Surgery & Rehabilitation Hospital understands that after having a stroke, you are going through more than just recovery, you are learning a new way of life.  Our team combines the knowledge of many medical professionals to develop an individualized treatment plan for each patient.  We will work together with you and your family to address the physical, functional and emotional challenges you may face. 

We offer the following specialized treatment and equipment: 

  • Neurologically based therapy techniques 
  • Specialized vision testing and consultation with a behavioral optometrist 
  • Specialized speech language services
  • Balance and mobility training with specialized equipment
  • Specialized equipment to address arm and hand use, coordination and integration of cognitive and motor function

Rehabilitation doesn't reverse the effects of a stroke. Its goals are to build your strength, capability and confidence so you can continue your daily activities despite the effects of your stroke.
