As one of only three Muscular Dystrophy Association sponsored clinics in New Jersey, The Muscular Dystrophy and Neuromuscular Center of Central New Jersey provides comprehensive care to adult and pediatric patients with diseases covered by the MDA grant including muscular dystrophy, motor neuron (Lou Gehrig’s) disease, inherited neuropathy (Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease) and myasthenia gravis. While these diseases cannot be cured, patients can improve their functioning and quality of life by receiving highly specialized care from a multidisciplinary team of experts.
Adults and children of all ages are evaluated by our panel of experienced physicians and therapists in just one visit. Comprehensive care includes immediate access to trained therapists, pulmonary function testing, orthotists, communication device experts, mobility equipment and a complete range of assistive devices, available for loan. A specially-trained nurse practitioner is on-site to personally work with patients during the clinic, and is available by telephone between clinics to assist with treatment plans and other patient care issues, to ensure continuity of care.
The Center is led by Dr Neil Holland, one of only 16 physicians in the entire state of New Jersey with subspecialty board certification in neuromuscular medicine. Dr Holland is a member of MDA’s National Clinical Advisory Board, and a recipient of MDA’s Lou Gherig Humanitarian Award.
Dr. Holland, who has 15 years of experience directing MDA clinics, is joined by pediatric neurologist Dr. Shirley Fisch, now offering a full multidisciplinary MDA clinic for adults and children with neuromuscular disorders.
