ADVANCED NEUROCARE (ANC)
Advanced NeuroCare (ANC) is a neurology practice located in Morristown, New Jersey, offering diverse treatment options for many neurological and psychiatric conditions. Dr. Jonathan Fellus MD specializes in Neuro-rehabilitation of acquired brain injury, especially Traumatic Brain Injury, birth injuries, and anoxic-ischemic brain injury; neuro-degenerative diseases such as dementia are also frequently assessed and managed.
The ANC team addresses both short and long-term disease consequences with a spectrum of therapies. A diagnostic functional Neuro-imaging leader, and Neurofeedback Therapy expert, Dr. Jonathan Fellus and his team offer this cutting-edge, non-invasive neuromodulation technique to promote neuroplasticity and healing. The goal is functional restoration of abnormal brain networks or circuitry.
Together with Dr James Halper, MD, we specialize in TBI, PTSD, Anxiety and Depression, Autism, Epilepsy, Sleep Disorders, Stroke, Headaches, Nerve and Muscle Disorders, Dementia, Tinnitus, post-Covid19 encephalopathy (anxiety, depression, brain fog, insomnia, fatigue etc.); Neuropsychiatric disease, and other neurological problems.
Furthermore, we are open to novel, experimental, and alternative approaches to diagnose and treat neurological or psychiatric diseases. Our philosophy is to combine complementary, alternative or holistic therapies to achieve the maximum relief from symptoms, optimizing brain function to the greatest level possible. With certain chronic or degenerative disorders, just maintaining a certain level of functioning can represent a clinical victory.
Finally, our commitment to excellence goes beyond daily clinical practice. When opportunities arise, we conduct and participate in research projects in pursuit of new scientific advances that may discover safer and more effective treatment options.
