Infectious Diseases

Physicians in the Rutgers Health Infectious Diseases program see adults and children with problems that may be the result of infections. We address many conditions including:

  • AIDS
  • Chronic viral infections such as hepatitis B and C
  • Encephalitis (infections of the brain)
  • Endocarditis (infections of the heart)
  • HIV infections
  • Immunodeficiency
  • Infections associated with animal and insect exposure
  • Internationally acquired parasitic or malarial infections
  • Intestinal infections
  • Joint conditions
  • Liver-related conditions (hepatitis and others)
  • Lung conditions
  • Mononucleosis syndromes
  • Occult fevers
  • Osteomyelitis (bone conditions)
  • Pneumonia
  • Respiratory infections
  • Severe cellulitis (skin problems)
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Transplant or post-surgical complications
  • Tropical infections
  • Tuberculosis
  • Unusual and severe infections caused by
    • Fungi
    • Mycobacteria
    • Parasites
    • Rickettsia
    • Viruses

Our doctors also have expertise in treating unusual syndromes accompanied by fever that may be hard to diagnose.

Physicians with our program are faculty members of Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School or Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. Both are part of Rutgers University, one of the top research institutions in America. Our doctors are active in clinical research and in teaching about all aspects of infectious diseases. Each brings life-changing knowledge from the classroom to the exam room.

Working with Others

Our program works extensively with Rutgers’ Center for Emerging and Re-Emerging Pathogens, a Rutgers University entity that supports and fosters research in infectious diseases. This collaboration helps bring patients the benefits of cross-discipline clinical, teaching, and research experience. We also work closely with the Rutgers Public Health Research Institute to extend our knowledge of HIV, tuberculosis, and antibiotic research, as well as in public health. Our partnerships mean that patients have access to one of the largest groups of clinical and basic science investigators of tuberculosis in the world.
