Alleviating pain, restoring function

Healthy bones and joints enable us to remain active and pain-free. When bones and joints are unhealthy, perhaps due to an accident, aging, or over-use, the resulting pain can be incapacitating. The good news is that Ellenville Regional Hospital’s Orthopedics department can help put you on the road to a more comfortable and functional life.

Orthopedics clinic

Under the supervision of our Orthopedics and wound care specialist, Sushil Dhawan, MD, you can receive expert diagnosis and treatment procedures such as:

  • Arthroscopic surgery on knees and elbows
  • Pain management, cortisone injections of joints
  • Setting of fractures

If you are diagnosed with the need for a joint replacement, you will be referred to a specialized hospital for the procedure. Once the procedure is performed, you can choose to return to ERH for your rehabilitation in our popular Swing Bed program.
