The residency program is based at Saint Barnabas Medical Center (SBMC) in Livingston, New Jersey and is affiliated with Hackensack University Medical Center (HUMC) in Hackensack, New Jersey. These two hospitals combine for over 2,500 major neurosurgical procedures per year covering the full spectrum of neurological diseases. There is a general adult neurosurgery service and pediatric neurosurgery at both hospitals. The general neurosurgery service has subdivisions of general, vascular and endovascular surgery, epilepsy, functional, brain tumors and a complex spine surgery.
The large clinical volume, highly trained faculty and academic facilities, including the animal lab and clinical research, provide basis for an excellent training institution. The program has been recently inspected and approved for the next five (5) years by the ACOS.
The Neurology and Neurosurgery Programs at Saint Barnabas Medical Center where the residency is primarily based, has been recently named as one of the 50 best hospitals in the nation in those specialties by the U.S. News and World Report magazine.
