Secondary Conditions Treatment Services

What is the Multi-Specialty Clinic?

Our Multi-Specialty Clinic provides care and treatment for the secondary conditions of patients who have experienced a catastrophic injury.

Secondary conditions are negative health outcomes that occur as a direct result of a disability. The most common secondary conditions are pressure sores, respiratory complications, urinary tract infections, spasticity, and scoliosis.
