Dr. Abraham Lieberman, PT, DPT, FAAOMPT, is a fellowship-trained, Doctor of Physical Therapy licensed in the State of Texas. There are approximately 1500 fellowship-trained physical therapists in the United States of America, and only a minute number of clinicians that specialize in Orthopedics and Neurology like Dr. Lieberman. The goal of starting a private practice was to provide interventions for patients throughout their lifespan, from patients as young as a few days old to those approaching their centennial. Having worked in all rehabilitation settings, Dr. Lieberman has developed unique and effective physical therapy interventions especially tailored for each patient, including those with neurological and orthopedic conditions and patients seeking geriatric and pediatric care. Dr. Lieberman has lectured at a variety of institutions on the topics of rehabilitation, including at MD Anderson, and remains a national expert and consultant for complex multidisciplinary spinal and pelvic reconstruction rehabilitation, as well as pediatric and adult cervical torticollis.
Dr. Lieberman earned his undergraduate degrees at the College of Staten Island, and his doctorate at Touro College in NYC. After moving to Houston in 2009, Dr. Lieberman joined the Neurological outpatient rehabilitation team at TIRR (MemorialHermann). While at TIRR, Dr. Lieberman treated patients with a variety of neurological conditions including, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), Amputees, progressive diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and acquired conditions such as Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis. In addition to treating patients with typical neurological disorders, Dr. Lieberman began to become recognized for his ability to treat complex patients with post-traumatic injuries. The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center began to refer patients directly to Dr. Lieberman within the TIRR system to treat patients from the Neurosurgery department, and within a few years, Dr. Lieberman was asked to develop a rehabilitation protocol for patients status-post Total Sacrectomies. It came with great honor to be invited by the rehabilitation department to deliver Surgical Grand-Rounds at MD Anderson in 2011, and within a year, Dr. Lieberman opened his private practice to provide a highly specialized rehabilitation program to patients from all over the world. A constant critic of the scientific literature, Dr. Lieberman has earned The Faculty Research Award and continues to review the latest and greatest peer-reviewed articles in his field to ensure that he is providing the absolute best for his patients.
