When you need outpatient neurology services, we’re here to help
If you are experiencing chronic neurological symptoms and pain that have reduced your level of functioning, and are seeking intervention from a qualified specialist, the Neurosurgical Specialty Services at Ellenville Regional Hospital (E.R.H.) offer highly skilled evaluation and treatment by Michael Stewart Hahn, M.D., P.C. Dr. Hahn, a highly qualified neurosurgeon, sees patients onsite at the E.R.H. Specialty Services Department and performs outpatient surgeries and procedures to alleviate and treat many common neurological conditions. E.R.H. offers a holistic approach to treatment that does not rely solely on medications to alleviate, improve or cure symptoms. Following proper diagnosis, our outpatient programming emphasizes surgical interventions, injections, procedures and complementary physical therapy.
For convenience, you can participate in physical therapy sessions (including speech/language and occupational therapy) and have new M.R.I. studies, C-T scans, x-rays and ultrasound tests done right here, on site. We work with people of all ages, and tailor treatments to your individual needs and physical condition. Your caregivers and family members are welcome to attend sessions, as they may play a vital role in helping you to practice skills at home.
What types of issues do you most often treat?
The services provided by the Neurosurgical Specialty Services at E.R.H. include evaluation and treatment of neurological/neurosurgical conditions such as the following:
- Back and neck, arm and leg pain
- Carpel tunnel syndrome
- Arm or leg numbness/tingling
- Brain tumors
How do you diagnose problems?
Patients may be seen on a walk-in or referral basis, and the first step in diagnosing a problem is a physical examination and a comprehensive medical history. Your examination will include a discussion with Dr. Hahn about your symptoms and concerns, and further testing – such as M.R.I., x-rays, C-T Scans and ultrasounds – will be done as needed. If Dr. Hahn determines that outpatient neurological surgery is right for you, scheduling is flexible.
What kind of treatment and therapy might I receive?
Our innovative Neurosurgical Specialty Services offers outpatient surgery and procedures designed to alleviate pain/discomfort and improve mobility/function, in combination with prescribed and over-the-counter medications, non-pharmacologic approaches and physical therapy.
Referrals to the E.R.H. Physical Therapy Department, E.R.H. Pain Management Services, and E.R.H. Digital Diagnostic Imaging Department will be made, as needed, within the context of the program’s emphasis on looking at the whole person.
Do you accept referrals?
Yes, we encourage referrals from medical professionals, caregivers and others.
Working with your provider
If you need additional medical services (such as a prescription for medications or referrals for physical therapy), we will work with your provider or refer you to our staff professionals.
Who pays for my treatment?
Medicare and most major health insurers will pay for part of your Neurosurgical Specialty Services. If you cannot afford to pay, you may be eligible for our financial assistance program. Most insurances are accepted.
