About Roderick J. Clemente

Combining unparalleled surgical experience with cutting-edge technologies, Dr. Roderick J. Clemente has been delivering superb individualized care since 1985. Board certified in neurological surgery, he excels in the skills his profession requires: delicate manual dexterity, a three-dimensional sense, and the tenacity to persevere through lengthy and complicated cases—plus an empathy with patients who are often stunned by their diagnoses. Through the years he has found that offering patients a knowledgeable explanation of their disease can help them manage treatment and recovery with a healthy mental outlook.

One of New Jersey’s most esteemed neurological surgeons, Dr. Clemente remains at the forefront of his field, providing expert state-of-the-art treatment in all facets of his specialty, with particular interest in cervical and lumbar spine artificial disc replacements, spinal reconstruction for metastatic tumors, cerebral aneurysms, stereotactic cranial surgery and endoscopic surgery for pituitary tumors. He is also highly skilled in CyberKnife® robotic radiosurgery, which enables him to successfully treat otherwise inoperable tumors of the nervous system. “It’s quite exhilarating to follow the advancements in neurosurgery,” this ten-time New Jersey Monthly Top Doctor says. “After more than 30 years of practice, I am still growing intellectually.” Dr. Clemente works alongside Dr. Seth M. Dannis and an extremely competent, compassionate and responsive support staff.
