Conditions Treated

  • Stroke
    Strokes have many causes and usually involve an interruption or alteration of the blood supply to some area of the brain resulting in a lack of oxygen and subsequent tissue damage. Our stroke center specializes in rapid treatment to minimize the damage.
  • Neuro-trauma
    Direct trauma to the brain requires careful and dedicated care often over a lengthy course of rehabilitation. Here at MidHudson Regional Hospital, we have a dedicated team of rehab specialists.
  • Parkinson's Disease
    A degenerative disease of the movement control area of the brain which can be effectively managed through education and consultation with our neurologists.  The full spectrum of services is available at our center, from rehabilitation services to cutting age medical management, surgical care, and access to research in new therapies.
  • Gait and balance disorder
    Problems keeping a steady balance and proper walking ability is a tell-tale sign of a neurologic problem.
  • Other movement disorders such as Essential Tremor, tic disorders, chorea and dystonia are treated in a comprehensive manner with the full gamut of treatment options, including botulinum toxin injections (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport and Myobloc), intrathecal medication pumps, and functional neurosurgical approaches (Deep Brain Stimulation – DBS).
  • Memory disorders
    Disruption in memory function due to aging can be effectively treated by knowledgeable neurologists.
  • Spasticity
    Overactive muscles due to an injury to the nervous system from trauma, stroke, and many other conditions. Muscle spasms can contribute greatly to disability and pain, and can be effectively treated by neurologists and physiatrists at MidHudson Regional Hospital, where a spasticity clinic integrates care across specialties.
  • Epilepsy
    A chronic disorder characterized by brain dysfunction and usually associated with some alteration of consciousness such as seizures. Epilepsy symptoms vary from complex abnormalities of behavior including generalized or focal convulsions to momentary spells of impaired consciousness.
  • Multiple Sclerosis
    A disorder involving degeneration of the insulating tissue surrounding nerves. which presents with a wide range of symptoms and severity. 
  • Sleep Disorders
    We address altered sleep patterns that may be impaired by changes in our biology, medications, stress or other unidentified reasons. These disorders can have serious consequences to a person's health as effective sleep is necessary for continued survival.
  • Neuro-muscular, peripheral nerve injury
    Injury to neuromuscular junctions can disrupt nerve impulses to the muscles and cause symptoms ranging from paralysis to uncontrollable pain.
  • Pain
    Pain management involves complex chemical pathways in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). Our neurologists can develop pain medication regimens to effectively control chronic pain.
