I'm Dr. Kevin Zhao, a Neurosurgeon based in New Jersey.

I specialize in minimally invasive cranial and spine surgeries. My focus is on individualized care so patients can resume their daily lives as quickly as possible.

I take a minimally invasive approach to complex cases.

I firmly believe a minimally invasive approach offers less trauma to healthy tissues, and should be favored in cases where appropriate.

In contrast to traditional neurosurgical procedures, minimally invasive approaches involve smaller incisions and minimal shaving while offering faster recovery, less post-operative discomfort, and better outcomes.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

This illustration demonstrates a minimally invasive pterional craniotomy, showcasing its smaller incision and minimal hair shaving compared to the traditional approach. We frequently utilize this technique for various brain tumors and aneurysms, offering patients benefits such as faster recovery and reduced complications.

Employing a minimally invasive approach as the cornerstone of his practice, Dr. Zhao integrates state-of-the-art technologies such as computer-guided neuronavigation, fluorescence imagery, microsurgery, as well as endonasal and transcranial endoscopy.
