Charles J. Prestigiacomo, MD, Chief of Service
The Department of Neurological Surgery provides the most comprehensive array of services and technology in New Jersey. Supported by a fellowship-trained faculty, the department offers the complete range of conventional neurosurgical procedures along with numerous sub-specialty programs not available elsewhere in the state. Centers of excellence focus on the most complex conditions, offering the latest-generation technology to support the least invasive surgical approach and greatest level of recovery.
The Department is an integral component of the New Jersey Trauma Center, the Level I trauma center for northern New Jersey and the busiest in the state. It is a major element of the federally designated Northern New Jersey Spinal Cord Injury System, providing integrated, multidisciplinary care for patients who have suffered catastrophic spinal cord injury.
The depth and breadth of the Department's offerings are supported by the only dedicated Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit in the state as well as its role as the source of the only neurosurgical residency in New Jersey.
