Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation

The key roles of the Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Department at KEM Hospital, Pune are prevention, restoration and rehabilitation in the treatment of disease or injury. We have been serving our patients with excellent physiotherapy services since May 1976. Our goal is to provide physiotherapy services to all our patients and ensure better quality of life. The services provided meet established standards of clinical practice and comply with the organization’s statement of mission.

The centre is the oldest teaching institute in the city and provides postgraduate physiotherapy students an opportunity to learn and grow in its ever welcoming environment.
