I saw Dr Bassani for spine issues and wound up having him perform the required surgery. Dr Gassani was very personable, he reviewed and explained what the issues were with my spine in terms that we could understand. My choice to have Dr. Bassani perform the surgery was not difficult to make and the results of my surgery were excellent. Thank you Dr. Bassani! The staff at the office were also very helpful and pleasant. to deal with. Overall, my experience with Neurosurgeons of NJ and St. Barnabas Hospital were excellent.

Dr. Basani has been amazing to my son. From the diagnosis, through the operation, and all of the post-op follow ups, he has been patient, decisive, compassionate, and available to answer any & all of our questions. He's one of the best in the biz.

When no one else listened, Dr. Bassani did. He's made this hydrocephalus journey for my preemie much easier. Can't thank him enough.

It was recommended that my daughter receive a helmet due to the shape her of head, after much research, we went to see Dr. Bassani who evaluated my daughters head and assured us that there was no need for a helmet. It is thanks to his expertise that we were able to avoid an expensive and unnecessary helmet! A year later, she still has a perfect head without any flat spots! Thank you, Dr. Bassani !

Dr Bassani and his staff have all been nothing short of delightful. Our son needed corrective cranial surgery as an infant and Bassani made us feel like he was in competent, caring hands. We are almost two years out of surgery, our son is developing perfectly, and we are still delighted to go in for our periodic well visits. Highly recommend Bassani!
