DR. DAVID S. ROSENBLUM graduated summa cum laude from the University of Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and completed his residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. He is medical director of physical medicine and rehabilitation and spinal cord injury research at Gaylord Hospital in Wallingford.
“People come from all over Connecticut and beyond to Gaylord,” he says, because it is part of a network of 14 national spinal cord injury model systems that pool research and data to help deliver quality, cost-effective care to those recovering from spinal cord injury or illness. He is board-certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation and spinal cord injury medicine and works with patients dealing with severe strokes, multiple traumas, multiple sclerosis, post-polio and other conditions. “In rehab, people often have significant issues with disabilities,” he says. “We are here to maximize their ability even in disability.”
