Experience has shown that the sooner a patient begins to use a new hip, knee or shoulder, the better their overall recovery will be.
To help get patients get back on their feet as soon and as safely as possible, Sarasota Memorial has a dedicated inpatient rehabilitation unit where patients can begin the recovery process under the 24/7 watchful care of our medical and rehabilitative nursing team. Physical therapists work with patients in our rehab gym to assess their abilities and teach them exercises and movements designed to enhance recovery and protect new joints. The unit also has a specially designed apartment with bedroom, living room, bathroom and kitchen where patients work with occupational therapists to learn techniques and use tools that will help them function independently and safely when cooking and caring for themselves at home.
