A wide spectrum of activities are undertaken by the Rehabilitation Team and thus catering to a variety of patients. To give few examples, patients with neck or back pain, knee pain, various joint disorders, developmental disorders like cerebral palsy, neurological conditions like stroke, spinal cord injuries etc. It is not an overstatement to say that any person might benefit with a Rehabilitation intervention. Patients are initially seen by the specialist doctors who are responsible for the accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.

General OPD is conducted by the Resident Doctors along with the Faculty Members. Days of availability of most doctors during the week are fixed.

How to see the doctors in the OPD:
  1. Registration in OPD is mandatory to seek consultation and treatment: All patients coming for consultation/treatment, either reporting directly to PMR OPD or referred from other OPDs of AIIMS or other hospitals are required to be registered in the PMR OPD.
  2. Registration Counters: Exclusive registration counters are located in the PMR OPD. This is done to facilitate patients with limited mobility. For timings, please see below.
  3. Location: PMR OPD is located on the ground floor, about 100 meters towards east of the main OPD (behind Rajkumari Amrit Kaur OPD Block).  The registration counter is located near the entrance of the PMR OPD.
  4. Consultation Timings: Doctors are generally available during morning hours in the OPD from 9 AM onwards until the all the patients registered on that day in the PMR OPD are seen.

    i. On the 15th of the month.
    ii. On the last working day of the month.
    iii. If any of the above dates happens to be a gazetted holiday/Sunday, appointments are given one day prior to this date.
