John L. Gillick, MD

New Jersey Medical School

Assistant Professor, Department of Neurosurgery

I am an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at Rutgers University-New Jersey Medical School in Newark, NJ. I specialize in treating complex disorders of the spine, but also maintains a general neurosurgery practice. I received my medical degree from New York Medical College in Valhalla, NY. I completed my neurosurgical residency at NYMC/Westchester Medical Center, during which I also completed an enfolded complex spine fellowship. Additionally, I completed a post-residency fellowship in complex spinal surgery and deformity at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA. I also received specialized training in pediatric deformity at Shriners Hospital for Children-Philadelphia. I have lent his spine and neurological surgery expertise to numerous publications and book chapters, as well as several abstracts and presentations.

I believe in an individualized, patient-centered, and disease-specific approach in tailoring the proper spinal care for each patient. I employ the latest in spinal navigation technologies and surgical techniques.
