Didem Inanoglu, M.D.  integrates the latest advancements in pediatric physical medicine and rehabilitation in her care for children with special needs and functional deficits. For the past seven years, her sole clinical focus has been working with infants, children and adolescents who need medical or therapy interventions to achieve a better quality of life with improved function.

Dr. Inanoglu's patients range from children with congenital conditions to those with neurological disorders or traumatic injuries. She is board-certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation and pediatric rehabilitation medicine. After completing her fellowship training in spinal cord medicine, she worked overseas with the People to People Foundation for two years as a program director providing clinical care and much needed training for rehabilitation professionals in Turkey. She has since been treating kids with disabilities and musculoskeletal pain in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

In 2007, Dr. Inanoglu helped establish the Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine (PRM) Department at Children’s Health℠ and start the fellowship training program for PRM at UT Southwestern Medical Center, where she is an associate professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation. Her goal has been building a culture that fosters commitment to the highest standards of excellence in patient care and teaching.

“I deliver outpatient and inpatient consultation services on two campuses of Children’s Health in addition to training for medical students, residents and allied health students. My goal is to promote the state-of-the-art pediatric care at Children's Health and maximize opportunities to incorporate scientific discoveries and academic achievements into translational research and education for the benefit of children and their families."
