About Dr. Paul R. Gigante

Dr. Gigante graduated from Harvard Medical School and went on to complete his Neurosurgical Residency and Chief Residency at Columbia University Medical Center/NewYork Presbyterian Hospital. He then completed fellowship training at Stanford University in functional neurosurgery, focusing on frameless deep brain stimulation for Parkinson’s Disease and essential tremor; spinal cord stimulation for chronic pain; and surgical treatments of trigeminal neuralgia.

After fellowship Dr. Gigante began a general neurosurgical practice in Minneapolis, serving patients with spinal conditions, chronic back/limb pain, brain tumors, and critically ill patients with intracranial hemorrhage. Dr. Gigante also built a deep brain stimulation program across multiple institutions in order to provide access to care for lesser-served communities.

Dr. Gigante’s treatment philosophy is based on a conservative treatment approach to herniated cervical and lumbar discs, spinal degeneration, spinal tumors, fractures, and spinal fusions, utilizing advanced and minimally invasive surgical techniques where applicable. For patients with refractory chronic arm, leg, and back pain, Dr. Gigante performs spinal cord stimulation when all other conservative treatments have failed.

Dr. Gigante also specializes in treatment of brain tumors in important functional areas of the brain, trigeminal neuralgia, and utilizes a novel frameless surgical technique to perform deep brain stimulation for patients with Parkinson’s Disease, essential tremor, and dystonia.

Dr. Gigante is now seeing patients at Barnabas Health Ambulatory Care Center in Livingston, New Jersey. He takes insurance and welcomes new and returning clients to his new office.
