Jesuel Padro-Guzman, M.D.

 I am a board certified physician in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R), also known as a physiatrist.  After completing my residency training at San Juan Veterans Hospital Medical Center, I went on to receive subspecialty fellowship training in Cancer Rehabilitation Medicine at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.  I have special expertise in evaluating and treating the neuromuscular, musculoskeletal, and functional complications that patients sometimes develop as a result of cancer and cancer treatments. These complications can include acute and chronic pain, weakness, muscle spasms, neuropathy, myopathy, deconditioning, contractures, spasticity, spinal cord injury, lymphedema, amputation, and gait disorders.  I also treat patients with general musculoskeletal complaints.

I provide individualized, comprehensive musculoskeletal care focused on the non-operative treatment of joint, muscle and nerve injuries.  My treatments include appropriate physical therapy programs, medication management and selective injections including ultrasound-guided injections.   Furthermore I perform electrodiagnostic tests (nerve conduction studies and electromyography) to aid in the diagnosis of muscle and nerve pathologies.  I also utilize electrodiagnostic modalities to guide botulinum toxin injections to manage pain and spasticity.
