Hilary Grosso Jasutkar, MD, PhD is a board certified neurologist specializing in neurodegenerative conditions affecting cognition, such as Alzheimer’s disease and frontotemporal degeneration, at Rutgers – Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (RWJMS). She obtained her MD and PhD degrees at Rutgers – RWJMS, and completed her internship training at Lankenau Medical Center. She then went on to complete her residency in neurology at Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC), followed by fellowship training in behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry with the Division of Aging and Dementia at CUIMC.
In addition to her clinical work, Dr. Grosso is the principle investigator on research projects studying the molecular mechanisms supporting normal cognition, and how these processes are disrupted during the course of neurodegenerative dementias.
Dr. Grosso’s patient care philosophy emphasizes a collaborative relationship between our clinic and patients and their families. This includes providing education on the patient’s underlying diagnosis and ensuring that patients and their families understand the rationale for testing and treatment recommendations in order to support shared decision making.
