A Boulder, Colorado native who practiced Emergency Medicine for over fifteen years, Dr. McCaffrey moved to Hawaii and founded the Work*Star Injury Recovery Center in 1990 at Queens Medical Center West in Leeward Oahu. Shortly thereafter upon extensive research he developed the Aquatherapy Center at PT Hawaii-Waipahu. His concepts have evolved into a multiple location, integrative rehabilitation program which address the needs of patients with acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries and rheumatological disorders.
A strong advocate of water based care, Dr. McCaffrey has been a pioneer in aquatic therapy through devolepment of a 100,000 gallon indoor, solar heated, salt water pool facility in leeward Oahu. By reducing gravity through buoyancy, this approach has proven especially effective in people with spinal injuries, multiple regional trauma disorders and multiple joint arthritic dysfunction.
Now, in its twenty-seventh year of operation, Work*Star and PT Hawaii have successfully treated over 40,000 patients covering a broad spectrum of injuries that occur at work, play, home, or on the hightway. The organizations have been recognized as innovators and leaders in the field of patient-centered rehabilition.
Dr. McCaffrey is known for his patient advocacy and adherence to the time honored medical values of the Hippocratic Oath. He has served as president of the Honolulu County Medical Society, the Hawaii Medical Association, the Hawaii Injured Worker Alliance and the Work Injury Medical Association.
