Meet Our Physical & Occupational Therapists

You won’t find a more committed, skilled team of physical and occupational therapists anywhere in WNY. Our therapy department is a cornerstone of patient care. Each and every therapist at Excelsior works hard to ensure our patients are able to reach their movement and function goals, whether you’re seeing them pre-surgery, post-surgery, or as your main course of treatment.
