Lata Kumaraswamy, DO

“Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation allows me to be part of my patient’s path to recovery. This time is an opportunity where my patients can heal and grow stronger. My focus is on patient care where we seek to restore and maximize function to improve their quality of life.”

Dr. Lata Kumaraswamy joined the practice in 2011 after completing an interventional spine fellowship at Southwest Spine and Sports. She completed her residency program in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Michigan State University where she was Co-Chief Resident. Prior to residency, she completed an internship for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation with Ingham Regional Medical Center. She obtained her Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and she also holds a Bachelor of Science in Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Arizona.
