A Word From Dr. Rudin

It is my privilege to treat patients and teach medicine at the University of Wisconsin. As a physiatrist (rehabilitation physician), my goal is to improve function, comfort and quality of life for my patients. The best thing about my practice is helping patients take control of their chronic pain conditions and live more fulfilling lives. We use every sort of tool: exercises, rehab therapies, behavioral and psychological treatments, medications, braces and splints, and injections. It is always a pleasure to help patients achieve success and reach their goals.
