We approach each patient through a rehabilitation specialist or multidisciplinary holistic team approach, using a wide range of medications, interventions and devices such as braces and prostheses, therapies, robotics and modalities to achieve optimal outcomes.

The mission of the SRMS is to promote the development of Rehabilitation Medicine in Singapore and to improve education and research in all areas of this medical field.
