RODERICK J. CLEMENTE, MD, FACS
Board-certified neurological surgeon Dr. Roderick Clemente excels in those skills his profession requires: manual dexterity, a three-dimen-
sional sense, the tenacity to persevere through lengthy and complicated cases—plus an empathy with patients, who are often stunned by their
diagnoses. In his experience, offering patients a knowledgeable explanation of their disease can help them manage their treatment and recov-
ery with a healthy mental outlook.
One of New Jersey’s most highly regarded neurological surgeons, Dr. Clemente delivers the superlative care that patients deserve. Having
practiced since 1985, he offers expertise in all facets of neurosurgery, including cutting-edge spinal surgery such as artificial lumbar and cervi-
cal disc replacement; spinal reconstruction for metastatic tumors; cerebral aneurysms; and brain tumor surgery. Dr. Clemente is particularly
interested in CyberKnife® robotic radiosurgery for otherwise nonoperable tumors of the nervous system. He frequently attends conferences to
stay on top of state-of-the-art treatments and is currently learning the very newest endoscopic surgery for pituitary tumors. “It’s quite exhilarat-
ing to follow the advances in my profession,” he says. “After nearly 30 years of practice, I am still growing intellectually.”
Dr. Clemente has been recognized as a New Jersey Monthly Top Doctor for six years in a row. He shares his practice with
Dr. Seth M. Dannis and a highly competent, compassionate and responsive support staff.
