Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: MS Affects Children Too: Rutgers Health Treats Patients at the Only Pediatric MS Program in the State

Newswise imageIt's estimated that more than 8,000 American children are currently fighting MS. The most common presentations of the disease include visual impairment, transverse myelitis, arm-leg weakness, sensory disturbances, inflammation of the spinal cord, or balance problems. And like most diseases, early intervention offers the greatest hope of mitigating patients' symptoms. Pediatric neurologist Vikram Bhise, MD, at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, has dedicated his career to treating MS and other central demyelinating diseases. The only dedicated pediatric MS program in the state, Rutgers Health works to provide cutting-edge therapies, patient and family education, and access to clinical trials.
