Choosing a Rehabilitation Unit/CARF

Rehabilitation services are provided in many different places, including hospitals, long-term care facilities, and community health centers.

Community Re-Entry

One of the main goals of rehabilitation is to prepare the patient for life after discharge.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation

A pulmonary rehabilitation program is tailored to meet the needs of the individual patient and the specific lung problem or disease.

Radiation Therapy

Radiation is often used to treat prostate cancer that is still confined to the prostate gland, or has spread only to nearby tissue.

Radiation Therapy for Breast Cancer Treatment

Radiation therapy is a process that precisely sends high levels of radiation directly to the cancer cells. Radiation done after surgery can kill cancer cells that may not be seen during surgery.

Radical Prostatectomy

A prostatectomy is a surgical procedure for the partial or complete removal of the prostate. It may be performed to treat prostatic cancer or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).


Radiology has become highly specialized, as have most other medical and surgical specialties. The current trend is for radiologists to become specialized in a particular discipline, such as cardiology (the study and treatment of the heart) or neurology (the study and treatment of the brain and nervous system).
