NeuroMusculoskeletal Institute

Rowan-Virtua Neuromusculoskeletal Institute

The physicians and staff at the Rowan-Virtua NeuroMusculoskeletal Institute (Rowan-Virtua NMI) not only treat your pain, but work together to optimize your quality of life. Using a wide range of therapies and medical treatments, we can tailor a plan that is unique to your needs. Additionally, as an integrated pain management and substance use disorder (SUD) institute, our researchers and physicians are involved in clinical research trials and investigations that target advancements in prevention, treatment, harm reduction and recovery.

The NMI is designated by the State of New Jersey as the Southern NJ MAT Center of Excellence (SNJMATCOE). As recipient of a $2 million annual award from the New Jersey Division of Human Services (DHS) and Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services (DMAHS), the SNJMATCOE plans, creates, and executes statewide training content, education, and mentoring initiatives. Richard Jermyn, DO, FAAPMR, Professor and Hunterdon Health Endowed Chair of the NMI, serves as the SNJMATCOE Principal Investigator (PI).
