    Dr. Adam Lipson is a board-certified neurosurgeon specializing in brain tumors, pituitary tumors, and minimally-invasive techniques for spinal surgery. He graduated from Harvard Medical School with honors in 2000, then continued his training with neurosurgical residencies at the University of Washington and at Penn State Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA. His clinical interests are in minimally invasive spine surgery, spinal deformity, spinal cord stimulation surgery for chronic pain syndromes, radiosurgery, brain tumors, spine tumors and deep brain stimulation for movement disorders. He performed in New Jersey’s first frameless Deep Brain Stimulator procedure for movement disorders in the spring of 2010.

    In 1998, he was awarded a prestigious Fulbright Fellowship to study neuro-regeneration at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden. In 2011, he traveled to Vietnam to perform scoliosis surgery on children and educate local surgeons for Project Butterfly. Committed to helping advance his field, he gives numerous talks and lectures each year to colleagues and other medical professionals. He has written over 20 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters.
