Cancer Rehabilitation

TIRR Memorial Hermann and the Memorial Hermann Rehabilitation Network offer comprehensive rehabilitation for those affected by cancer in the inpatient, outpatient rehabilitation and outpatient medical clinic settings. We create individualized treatment programs that optimize a patient’s journey to success in achieving personal goals, whether they are newly diagnosed or long finished with treatments. We provide an environment that gives patients, their families and caregivers the opportunity to participate in important life roles and enhance their quality of life.

  • Cancer-related fatigue
  • Cognitive dysfunction
  • Lymphedema
  • Deconditioning
  • Decreased walking ability
  • Decreased strength, balance and/or coordination
  • Peripheral neuropathy/plexopathy
  • Pain
  • Dysphagia
  • Diminished oral motor skills
  • Safety concerns
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Community reintegration
