Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Neurosurgery

Atlantic Health System Neuroscience's multidisciplinary teams of neurologists, neurosurgeons and neuroradiologists at Chilton Medical Center, Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center are experts in surgical treatment of neurological disorders. We collaborate with patients and family members to plan and implement individualized treatment services that optimize recovery and facilitate a return to normal activities.

Functional Neurosurgery

Using minimally invasive, stereotactic surgery to isolate targeted areas in the brain, our neurosurgeons remove tumors to address intractable tremors, Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy. Stereotactic procedures permit surgeons to remove brain tumors while avoiding critical structures.

Spinal Surgery

Our neurosurgeons use minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat degenerative and traumatic spinal cord injuries and nerve compression resulting from herniated discs, bony spurs or tumors. Spinal cord tumors, vascular malformations, and spasticity procedures are done in collaboration with specialists in those areas.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery

The stereotactic radiosurgery program at Atlantic Neuroscience Institute at Overlook Medical was the first of its kind in New Jersey. It offers CyberKnife state-of-the-art focused radiation to treat brain tumors, vascular malformations, and pain and movement disorders.
