Cancer Rehabilitation Program
Today's life-saving cancer treatments sometimes bring about side effects that require rehabilitative care for patients to regain ability, manage pain and reclaim their quality of life. The NBTI works collaboratively with the renowned Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago to treat a wide range of short and long-term impairments that may result from a brain tumor and its treatments.

The Cancer Rehabilitation Program is one of only a few in the country to work with patients during cancer treatment, coordinating rehabilitation around chemotherapy cycles, radiation treatments and surgery.
