“I am thrilled to be at an elite medical facility, a place where children and their families receive first-rate patient centered care. This is also a tremendous opportunity to join a group of supportive and talented neurosurgeons at North Jersey Brain and Spine Center who have a reputation for practicing compassionate medicine. I am also looking forward to working with the children and their families to help shape our regional academic pediatric neurosurgery center to fit their needs.”

Dr. Tim Vogel

As a nationally recognized pediatric neurosurgeon, Dr. Vogel is director of pediatric neurosurgery North Jersey Brain and Spine Center. Previously he helped build the top-tier pediatric neurosurgery program at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, the largest children’s medical center in the mid-west and ranked #3 in the country. Dr. Vogel  joined Dr. Patrick Roth’s Department of Neurosurgery at Hackensack University Medical Center to build a flagship pediatric neurosurgical center for New Jersey. Patients and their families travel from New York, Boston, and Philadelphia for specialized state-of-the-art care with Dr. Vogel.


Dr. Vogel has developed a robust academic pediatric neurosurgery program and his clinics are based on a multi-disciplinary team approach with neurosurgeon specialists, pediatricians, and oncologists so that families have coordinated and clear care plans for their children. Dr. Vogel also introduced novel minimally-invasive pediatric neurosurgical and craniofacial treatments that he helped to describe.


Dr. Vogel is also an international expert on pediatric craniofacial surgery and on understanding the cause of one of the most common neurological conditions affecting young children, hydrocephalus. Commonly known as water on the brain, hydrocephalus affects one in every 1000 babies. Surgery continues to be the only recommended treatment for hydrocephalus, however, Dr. Vogel is investigating how this may change with future therapies.


In a concerted attempt to make inroads in the treatment of this devastating condition, Dr. Vogel established the Vogel Research Lab in conjunction with the Hydrocephalus Association. The Vogel lab has been supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Dr. Vogel collaborates throughout the country investigating novel genetic studies and imaging techniques related to hydrocephalus. He has published numerous papers in several top science journals and is a sought-after presenter at international medical and association conventions.
