Jeffrey S. Fine, MD, has been named chief of the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at NYU Langone Hospital – Brooklyn and vice chairman for network development for Rusk Rehabilitation at NYU Langone Health throughout the borough.

Rusk Rehabilitation oversees NYU Langone Health’s comprehensive inpatient and outpatient programs throughout the New York metropolitan region to treat and guide recovery from accident-related trauma; fractures and other types of injuries; arthritis; joint replacements; spinal cord injury; brain injury; stroke; multiple sclerosis; Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders; pain disorders; and cardiac and pulmonary conditions. Physiatrists (physicians trained in physical medicine and rehabilitation), coordinate care of teams of clinical specialists including physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, audiologists and neuropsychologists to provide a wide array of services individually tailored for children and adults.

“Dr. Fine is an extremely accomplished clinician and administrator to lead our exemplary rehabilitation team in Brooklyn,” says Steven R. Flanagan, MD, the Howard A. Rusk Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine at NYU School of Medicine and chair of the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine for NYU Langone Health. “The department does a great job of restoring patients’ functional abilities, enabling them to have a good quality of life after their initial injury or illness.”

About Dr. Fine

Fine previously served as regional director for rehabilitation services at Elmhurst and Queens Hospital Centers, both part of NYC Health + Hospitals, and coordinated the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency program as associate program director at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Earlier, he was assistant professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and clinically served as a staff physiatrist in the Denver Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Center; the University of Colorado Health Science Center; and Denver Health Medical Center, where he was director of Rehabilitation Medicine.

“As rehabilitation specialists, we assist patients and their families in setting realistic, individualized goals to help them achieve optimal physical capabilities,” Fine says. “Designing a concrete plan with daily goals can go a long way in improving a patient’s quality of life. I am actively involved in developing tools and smartphone applications that can help patients function more independently and adhere to recommended rehabilitation activity regimens at home.”

Providing Inpatient and Outpatient Rehabilitation

The specialized 30-bed acute care inpatient unit at NYU Langone Hospital – Brooklyn is a federally-designated and Joint Commission-accredited Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility (IRF), providing the most comprehensive rehabilitative care available. While most hospitals offer abbreviated therapy at the bedside following an illness or injury, NYU Langone Hospital – Brooklyn offers an intense three-hour daily therapy program. The unit cares for many patients transferred from other hospitals because of its use of innovative therapies and application of advanced technologies to achieve optimal goals designed for each individual patient.

In addition, Rusk Rehabilitation offers outpatient services at three locations:

Rusk Rehabilitation at NYU Langone Hospital – Brooklyn at 60th Street;

Rusk Rehabilitation at NYU Langone Hospital – Brooklyn at 7th Avenue; and

Rusk Rehabilitation at NYU Langone Hospital – Brooklyn at Shore Road. 

Dr. Fine’s office is located at NYU Langone Hospital – Brooklyn, 150 55th Street Brooklyn, NY 11220. To make an appointment, please call 718-630-7425.
