A physiatrist or rehabilitation physician specializes in the non-surgical care of neuromuscular conditions – those affecting nerve, muscles, bones, tendons and joints. Physiatrists also specialize in treating patients with complex neurological deficits, including those occurring after stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury and orthopedic or neurosurgical procedures. According to the American Academy of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, this specialty aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life of those with physical impairments or disabilities.
Dr. Jani knows that being mobile and functionally independent are the most important indicators of success for his patients.
“People in general are living longer and with that comes an increase in the number of health concerns,” Dr. Jani said. “For a majority of the patients I see, mobility, functional independence and quality of life go hand in hand. It is my goal to help my patients live their lives to the fullest.”
Dr. Jani received his medical degree in 2001 and his master of surgery in orthopedics in 2005 from the Government Medical College and New Civil Hospital, Surat, Gujarat, India. He completed his residency in internal medicine at Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center, Brooklyn, New York, in 2010. He completed his residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-New Jersey Medical School, Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation, Newark, New Jersey, in 2013. Dr. Jani is board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
To schedule an appointment with Dr. Jani, a physician referral is required.
