The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) Oncology Rehabilitation Program, led by Dr. Andrew Savoie, offers specialized medical care for cancer patients who hope to improve their general well-being. The goal of this program is to improve quality of life for both the patient and their family by managing physical impairments, overseeing personalized rehabilitation programs, and providing medical follow-up for these issues.
Oncology rehabilitation is appropriate for any age, as well as during any stage of illness, and it can be provided together with curative treatment.
In the Oncology Rehabilitation Program, we aim to reinforce the patient-centered mission of the UK Markey Cancer Center by providing services complimentary to the medical and surgical oncology providers.
Dr. Andrew Savoie provides personalized care to patients during all stages of cancer treatment and recovery. His expertise is in the causes of disability, with a focus on the diagnosis and treatment of impairments in order to help patients return to their previous level of independence and quality of life.
In addition to oncology rehabilitation practices, we may perform diagnostic assessments and procedures to evaluate a patient. These may include:
- Prescription, administration, and supervision of rehabilitation therapies.
- Functional evaluations and optimization.
- Electrodiagnostic and nerve conduction studies.
- Diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound.
- Ultrasound guided soft tissue injections.
- Ultrasound-guided peripheral joint injections (and aspiration) for small, intermediate and major joints.
- Osteopathic manipulation/mobilization.
