Acquired and Hereditary Neuropathies

Hereditary Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) Neuropathy Treatment

The Neuroscience Institute team at Hackensack University Medical Center works collaboratively to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients living with hereditary neuropathies (CMT). Our program is led by Florian P. Thomas, M.D., a leader in the field of hereditary neuropathy. Dr. Thomas has engaged in CMT research for over 25 years. He has published on several subtypes, identified, with an international team of collaborators a novel CMT gene, and spearheaded, in the USA, one of the first treatment trials for the most common subtype of CMT. In the Center, a multidisciplinary team of experts come together to work closely with each patient, and develop a comprehensive course of treatment. Our program is recognized by the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation as a Center of Excellence.
