Patients often have a lot of fear when meeting with a neurosurgeon for the first time, and they may be worried about undergoing surgery. In reality, it’s often not necessary to operate at all.
Considered one of the country’s premier neurosurgeons, Dr. Vingan is a founding member of New Jersey Brain and Spine. In practice for nearly three decades, he has focused primarily on treating patients with spinal conditions for the past 15 years. He has held several leadership positions over the span of his career and is currently vice chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery, codirector of spine surgery, and chief of minimally invasive surgery at Hackensack University Medical Center.
Dr. Vingan is a strong advocate of conservative care, but when surgery is appropriate, he uses state-of-the-art techniques to improve outcomes and speed recovery. He is committed to staying on top of new technology developments and surgical innovations, and was among the first neurosurgeons in the region to use minimally invasive brain and spine surgical procedures.
An early proponent of advanced technologies, Dr. Vingan has been at the forefront of minimally invasive procedures; he was among the first in New Jersey to use frameless cranial and spinal navigation systems, endoscopic cranial and spinal techniques and other minimally invasive brain and spine procedures.
