Dr Joseph J. Burrascano Jr, MD
Dr. J. Burrascano is a well recognized specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme and associated complex infectious diseases, and the chronic illnesses that accompany them. With over twenty five years of experience and research in this field, he has appeared in and on virtually every form of media both in the U.S and abroad, has advised the CDC and NIH, testified before the U.S. Senate, an armed services joint subcommittee, and at various governor’s councils.
He is also a founding member of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society, and currently is an active Board Member of the affiliated International Lyme and Associated Diseases Educational Foundation.
No longer in clinical practice, Dr. Burrascano works full time in the biotech arena to further medical research in tick-borne and other chronic illnesses.
Notable among many of his ongoing projects is his active involvement in the recent development of in vitro culturing methods of symbiotic Borrelia including the Borrelia responsible for Lyme Disease. This landmark achievement provides a new standard for diagnosing all stages of Lyme disease and can be used to follow the outcome of treatment. Dr. Burrascano is still recruiting practitioners for his ongoing project, “The Lyme and Associated Diseases Registry™, which follows each selected patient from the beginning to the end of their illness, tracking symptoms, tests, treatments and outcomes. Finally, his lifelong interest in nutrition has come to bear with his present consultative work with various nutritional supplement suppliers.
