One of the leading pediatric neurosurgeons in the tri-state region, Dr. Richard Anderson specializes in the surgical treatment of pediatric brain and spinal tumors, craniosynostosis, complex spinal disorders, spasticity, Chiari malformation, vascular disorders, hydrocephalus and general pediatric neurosurgery. He practices alongside Dr. Neil Feldstein and their new partner Dr. Luigi Bassani.

Exceptional Patient Care from a World-Class Team

Dr. Anderson and his partners completed advanced fellowship training in pediatric neurosurgery, and are board certified/eligible in both adult and pediatric neurosurgery. They treat patients with the latest proven techniques, including computer-guided surgical navigation, minimally invasive neuroendoscopy and microsurgery. “We are highly trained and experienced to treat any pediatric neurosurgical condition,” Dr. Anderson says. 

Bringing World-Class Care to Local Communities

As faculty members at Columbia University, Drs. Anderson, Feldstein, and Bassani are dedicated to combining innovative techniques with clinical research to develop comprehensive and conservative approaches to surgery.

“No other pediatric neurosurgery group in New Jersey is participating in the type of clinical research that we do, and we work hard every day to bring this high level of innovative and successful care to families in their local communities,” Dr. Anderson says. As the father of a busy family with four young children living in Bergen County, Dr. Anderson recognizes the importance of bringing academic world-class care to local hospitals.

For family convenience, Dr. Anderson and his partners see patients in New Jersey (Ridgewood, Livingston, Paterson, and Highland Park), New York (Manhattan), and Connecticut (Stamford). They are affiliated with the Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital of New York Presbyterian, Hackensack Children’s Hospital, Valley Hospital, St. Barnabas Hospital and St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital.

 "When any child is faced with the possibility of neurosurgery, it's a hard thing to deal with both as the patient and the parent. Dr. Anderson is caring, compassionate and understanding. In addition, he's an incredibly gifted neurosurgeon, treating every patient as a priority." -Erica, Garfield
