Director of Oncology Rehabilitation & Integrative Services
Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Philadelphia
Gina Smith, PT, CLT is the Director of Oncology Rehabilitation & Integrative Services at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Philadelphia. A physical therapist for 30 years with advanced knowledge in Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy and Certification in Lymphedema Management, who understands that not one profession can cure all. It is the collaboration of the medical and integrative professional that provides the valued whole person care we seek for ourselves and our family. We should not lose sight of the patient as the center of our practice. This was a late career awareness that started with a small outpatient practice at a wellness center, working closely with holistic providers. A real career changer that led to her current role in an integrative model. Unique integrative pathways and programs developed as a result – Philadelphia Lymphedema Clinic, and Sexual Wellness Committee. These are survivorship issues that are often discounted after cancer cure or remission is achieved. Gina is passionate about meeting the needs of the patient during cancer care but also afterwards, as true testament to the ultimate goal of achieving an improved quality of life.
