The greatest Neurosurgeon that I could ever get. Dr. Jethwa and his P.A. Dean Barone saved me from paralyzation...The rare spinal cord disease of Syringomyelia that I have is quite horrible but they have and continue to give me hope!!! The best beside manner you could ever ask for, I have never experienced this in any Doctor since my childhood! I have nothing but praise, respect and confidence with all my experience with some of the most compassionate Staff ever. It starts from the top down!! Angela is fantastic and always is there for me. And Carmen is also great. I have nothing negative to say about all my experiences with Dr Jethwa and the entire staff. I really don’t think I would even be able to share this if it wasn’t for all the entire team.

My consult with Doctor Jethwa was thorough, and he really listened to me and my history with my health. He is accompanied by his nurse, Angela, for my consult, and they both are so down to earth and made me feel at ease. We went over my recent MRI, He explained to me, clearly, and in laymans terms, the findings and his expertise in offering solutions. I decided to go with his treatment plan, and I thank my Higher Power every day, to cross my path with Doc J.!! Doctor Jethwa's team took care of everything insurance wise... they cover all stops making sure you get maximum benefits, and coordinated all appointments, continuously keeping me updated and at ease before my procedure. Carmen and Angela are saints!!! I am writing this a year post procedure, and I'm here to say, that there are no words than can touch my gratitude. Neurosurgeon, Doctor Pinakin Jethwa gave me my life back, and faith in the process of healing ???? His SA, Doc Dean, Angela, and Carmen = Dream Team!!!

Dr. Jethwa saved my life in 2015, when my brain aneurysm ruptured whilst on the beach at Ocean Grove! Rushed to JSMC, into surgery within a few hours, with Dr. Jethwa. Skillful and compassionate, Dr. Jethwa knows his stuff. He works endoscopically, so I did not end up with a row of staples, but one small indentation, behind my hairline, not at all visible! He even gave he his cell number, for any questions. I researched my condition, and he listens and acts accordingly. I highly recommend Dr. Pinakin Jethwa! My story of survival (2-mmin video) appears on the HUMC website. Thank you, Dr. Jethwa!!

On June 15, 2019 Dr. Pinakin Jethwa performed an emergency Thrombectomy procedure at JSH and removed a 4" blood clot from the right side of my brain!! I have recovered 100%. In summary, I feel free to say not only is he a subject matter expert in his field, but is also a gentlemen! I highly recommend him!! He is a 10 out of 10.

My wife ruptured an aneurysm, whilst 26 weeks pregnant. This event happened at 5pm on new years day, which is only relevant because the usual plethora of Doctors available were at home with their families. Now that some time has passed, I understand this guy was facing an uphill battle from the beginning, firstly with the injury my wife had sustained, and what must have been limited resources. Day 1, after his first initial operation on my wife, the issue had been identified. After spending probably 4-6 hours in the operating room it had become clear to him that my wife was stable, and a more thorough procedure was required. I still remember meeting with him for the first time that night, after a long operation he walked into the family room by the ICU and calmly explained to a very emotional family what had happened, what was needed, and what to expect. After several operations, and nearly a month spent in the ICU, my wife was able to return home, with our child still in tow. and

My experience with Dr. Jethwa has been nothing short of amazing! He and the p.a., Barone, kept my mind at the ease after being admitted through the emergency room for my surgery. Recovery has been hitch free and I've recommended him to a few of my friends as well. 10/10 would do this all over again, no questions asked. They gave me my life back.

My mother at 81 had a ruptured brain aneurysm & was rushed to Emergency of Jersey Shore Medical in a life & death scenario. At the hospital Dr Jethwa introduced himself & explained the best options to save my mothers life. We found him to be extremely attentive, competent, thorough & compassionate through the entire medical treatment. I am convinced that this surgeon's skill & expertise proved to be the main factor in my mothers survival & ultimate full recovery.. We were blessed to have him.
