FEATURED REVIEW

OVERVIEW

Dr. Jonathan Yun, Ridgewood, NJ native neurosurgeon, focuses on neurosurgical disorders of the brain and spine, specifically degenerative conditions of the spine, brain tumors and metastases.

He specializes in open and minimally invasive approaches to spine pathologies, ranging from minimally invasive decompressive procedures to instrumented spinal fusions and deformity correction. He also specializes in stereotactic surgery and radiosurgery of the brain and associated structures. 

He became interested in neurosurgery as a young medical student, recognizing the potential of surgical and nonsurgical treatment, technology and research in compassionate care and impacting patient’s lives.

Background

Dr. Yun received his undergraduate degree in Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience from The Johns Hopkins University. Upon graduation, he was inducted into Alpha Epsilon Delta Pre-Medical Honor Society and Nu Rho Psi Undergraduate Honor Society for Neuroscience and was awarded general and departmental honors.

Dr. Yun completed his Doctorate of Medicine at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, where he graduated with honors and was elected into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha and Gold Humanism Honor Societies.

His career in neurosurgery began with The Neurological Institute of New York at Columbia University Medical Center/New York Presbyterian Hospital as a Doris Duke Clinical Research Fellow and an Alpha Omega Alpha Research Fellow. In these roles, Dr. Yun worked on translational therapies for drug delivery, the treatment of malignant and benign brain tumors, and worked to advance clinical trials.  

He completed his residency at The Neurological Institute of New York at Columbia University Medical Center/New York-Presbyterian Hospital, serving as the only chief resident to graduate alone in the history of the program. Since, he has authored over 20 neurosurgical publications and has given 13 presentations at neurosurgical conferences.

Dr. Yun is drawn to neurosurgery, as every patient and disease presents with opportunities to make a significant impact on one’s life. Although being diagnosed with a neurological condition can be challenging, Dr. Yun is fulfilled by this one-on-one relationship between the patient and the caretaker and the opportunity to carefully explain every option available. He is continuously driven by advances in neurosurgery that allow him to treat diseases with less surgery or none at all.

Dr. Yun appreciates that these instances provide him with the opportunity to select the best possible treatments for each patient. Lastly, he is happy to have returned to his native New Jersey to bring the highest level of University care to his community.

"I’m a little late in giving my review for an emergency operation performed on me by Dr. Yun (who I had never met prior to the surgery for laminectomy/fusion in 1922). If the rating scale was higher, I would have rated him with 10+ stars. I went from an individual suffering excruciating pain (diagnosed as severe spinal stenosis) 24/7 unable to sit, stand, lie down, etc., to a person WITHOUT any pain in the operated area after the procedure. I met with him after my extended stay at rehab and was very impressed with his compassionate, empathetic, relaxed, and informative post-operation appointment. He told me to call him with any questions or issues that may arise. I haven’t needed to and would highly recommend him. Look up his bio and you will see an incredible listing of his education and background medical history. "

"I was diagnosed couple years ago , the orthopedic i saw before wanted to do a fusion but in that moment sound so scary , I listened to people that told me go for a second opinion (best decision ever made ).i google neurologist in my area , Dr Yun came up , ever since i read about him I trusted him, I’m only 6 days after surgery and the relief is 200%, I’m sore because is normal after surgery but don’t feel that ugly pain from before , I’m able to walk straight from day 1 after surgery. So glad i meet Dr Yun ."
