During medical school, Dr. David Rosenblum was drawn to physiatry after witnessing the functional difference one could make in the lives of those recovering from life-altering illnesses or injuries.
Dr. Rosenblum joined Gaylord Specialty Healthcare in 1992, treating patients with spinal cord injuries, as well as many other conditions and is committed to seeking out new ways to improve the present – and future – quality of life for his patients. Along with his interdisciplinary team of rehabilitative experts, he has helped to propel Gaylord Specialty Healthcare to the national forefront of clinical care, rehabilitation and research.
Throughout his three decades at Gaylord, he has been an active researcher, lecturer and teacher with work published in numerous medical journals and textbooks.
Under his direction, Gaylord’s spinal cord program was included in the highly competitive Model Spinal Cord Injury System for three, five-year grant cycles. Dr. Rosenblum also led Gaylord to be among the first in the nation to use the intrathecal baclofen pump for the treatment of severe spasticity and to be a pioneer in the usage of exoskeletal robotic technology to allow people with spinal cord injuries or lower extremity paralysis or weakness to stand and walk.
In 2020, Dr. Rosenblum became the medical director for Gaylord’s Milne Institute for Healthcare Innovation, a hub for accelerating world-class rehabilitative research, technology development and innovation to improve the quality of life and function of people around the world.
Outside of work, he enjoys playing flute as an active member of the New Haven Chamber Orchestra.
