Physician Brings New Specialty to the Region

Physician Brings New Specialty to the Region

Dr. Linda Walby specializes in Physiatry and sees patients at The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center and in her private practice.

Sometimes called physical medicine and rehabilitation, physiatrists aim to improve the quality of life for patients with a decline or decrease in function or disability caused by disease or injury. The focus is not on one part of the body, but instead on the development of a comprehensive program for putting the pieces of a person's life back together. Physiatrists complete a one-year residency and three-year internship after completing medical school.

Dr. Walby comes to Gillette from Richland, Wash, and learned about the opportunity from friend and colleague Dr. John Mansell.

“I am really looking forward to establishing rapport with the rehab therapists, the nursing staff and every patient and their support system, “said Dr. Walby. “With a comprehensive and flexible plan, patients’ lives start to become familiar again. It is very stimulating to help align the pieces – medical, social, emotional, and vocational–and watch as the patient improves and thrives.”

Physiatrists see patients suffering from:

  • Brain injuries
  • Chronic pain
  • Stroke
  • Multiple Sclerosis

  • Wound care management
  • Lifelong rehabilitation
  • Braces, splints and prosthetics
