Salvatore Russomano, MD
Dr. Russomano grew up in Newark, NJ. An exceptionally gifted student and an only child, he attended Seton Hall Prep and then Seton Hall University, where he majored in biology and minored in physics.
While in medical school at Rutgers UMDNJ, Dr. Russomano did a rehab rotation at a rehab center right near Cooper – and loved it.
At Jefferson for his residency, he spent years 2, 3 and 4 with Dr. Gerald Herbison, a doctor of physical medicine who had a history of polio.
Doctors of physical medicine frequently perform electromyography (EMG). EMGs are nerve conduction studies used to diagnose diseases related to the neuromuscular junction such as muscular dystrophy, polio and myasthenia gravis.
Under Dr. Herbison, one of the world’s premier electromyographers, Russomano performed as many EMGs as he possibly could.
Today, he is a full time physician with Bacharach Rehabilitation Medicine. “I love it, love it, love being at Bacharach,” he said recently. “I can just focus on patient care 100%.”
