About Our Practice

Cutting-edge medicine with a human approach.

At Neurosurgeons of New Jersey, we believe you need more than a doctor, you need an advocate. Our team is made up of world-class surgeons, which allows for each surgeon to develop the highest degree of specialization in their chosen area. As a result, we have become one of the most sub-specialized groups in the Tri-State area.

Our commitment.

We have commitment to providing patients with the most appropriate evidence-based approach for addressing their neurosurgical conditions. As a professional academic practice, we are routinely engaged in clinical research that pushes the envelope.

An advantage of our academic affiliation and our focus on specialized expertise is that patients are directed to the most appropriate specialist, rather than the first available surgeon. We don’t provide incentives for doctors to work outside their specialties, we promote cross-discipline consultation.

Above all, our treatment philosophy is conservative: surgery is not always the right solution for every patient. The best treatments may or may not include surgery, and we approach every patient’s case with this unique perspective.

Our affiliations.

Being one of the largest neurological practices in the Tri-State Area comes with its benefits. We’re proud to be affiliated with over a dozen of the leading medical facilities in the NYC & NJ area. This means you have access to cutting-edge neurological care no matter where you are.
