Physiotherapists 

Karen Surgery is a centre of excellence for physiotherapy. The four physiotherapists have diverse training and approaches, and a wealth of experience, in Kenya as well as Australia, Canada and the UK. Specialist areas of expertise are sports injuries - in both elite athletes and recreational players - and neuro-rehabilitation and paediatric physiotherapy.

 

Appointments with the physiotherapists are made either directly, or after referral from a doctor. Self-referred patients are offered a GP to provide medication management and to address any concomitant health needs, and a nutritionist may be included in the team, providing comprehensive treatment in one venue.
