Neurology

November 29, 2017 will forever be remembered as a banner day in the advancement of brain tumor treatment and research in New Jersey. That was when Overlook Medical Center officially opened the Gerald J. Glasser Brain Tumor Center, offering services that were previously only available in New York and Philadelphia. In addition to state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge clinical trials, patients coming to our center will have access to supportive care, like nutrition guidance, pain management and nurse navigators.
