The neurosurgeons of Neurosurgical Associates of Central Jersey provide a unique expertise in caring for spinal conditions, including herniated disc, spinal compression and many others traditionally seen by spinal orthopedists. Dr. James Chimenti and Dr. Richard Buonocore have been lauded by patients and peers alike.
The spine is a complex network of nerves, muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons that is vital to performing everyday activities we normally take for granted, like walking and sitting. Drs. Chimenti and Buonocore take a conservative approach to treating the spine, preferring to avoid surgery by exhausting all nonsurgical treatment options—such as physical therapy and corticosteroid injections—before recommending surgery.
When surgery does become necessary, our surgeons are experts in minimally invasive procedures. This allows for less discomfort and shorter recovery time for the patient, as well as a lower risk of complications.
The best medical care starts with listening to the patient and understanding his or her needs. That’s why we will always work with the patient to create an individualized treatment plan that suits each individual’s needs.
