New treatment center for Alzheimer’s opens in New Jersey

November 13, 2013 by  

Capital Health, which operates hospitals in Hopewell and Trenton, both of which are a short driving distance from Hamilton, recently announced that its Institute for Neuroscience will be opening an Alzheimer’s Disease and Cognitive Neurology Program that will focus on the treatment of this disease, with which about 150,000 people in the state are diagnosed. No doubt Capital Health is using brochure printing to print brochures that more fully describe the services it will be providing as part of this new program.

According to the director and chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at Capital Health, Erol Veznedaroglu, the program will offer the latest testing, technology and care for patients and also provide support for their families.

Dr. Veznedaroglu added that many places which treat Alzheimer’s and other cognitive disorders use generalists and do not want to make the investment that is needed to treat these conditions. The Capital Institute for Neurosciences has trained and very specialized physicians who are the best qualified to treat this population of patients.

G. Peter Gliebus, the director of the program and a neurologist who is trained in neuropsychiatry and cognitive behavioral neurology, added that specialized training is needed to treat someone with various cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s so that these conditions can be fully understood. A doctor who can truly help such patients has compassion and the ability to get to know and closely examine the patient and the family so as to be able to detect even the slight changes in behavior.
