Yaron A. Moshel, MD, PhD


  • Medical Director of Neurosurgery at Atlantic Health System
  • Co-Director of the Gerald J. Glasser Brain Tumor Center

Clinical Interests
Brain, skull base, pituitary and spine tumors, functional brain mapping, minimally invasive endoscopy, microsurgery and stereotactic radiosurgery

Dr. Moshel is a board-certified neurosurgeon. He is fellowship-trained in neuro-oncology, brain tumor surgery, stereotactic and skull base surgery.

Dr. Yaron Moshel is co-director of the Gerald J. Glasser Brain Tumor Center at Atlantic Health System and part of the neurosurgical team at Atlantic Brain and Spine in Morristown. He is also Clinical Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at NYU Langone Medical Center.

Dr. Moshel is one of a select few surgeons who specialize in removing deep-seated brain tumors using technology that includes computer-guided navigation, awake intraoperative brain mapping, endoscopy, and microsurgery. Dr. Moshel is a vital part of Overlook Medical Center’s CyberKnife Program making it the largest CyberKnife Program in the tri-state region for the treatment of brain tumors. Dr. Moshel is also actively involved in advancing the treatment of brain tumors and actively participates in national multicenter clinical trials, most recently working with an autologous dendritic cell vaccine and on a retroviral vaccine trial for recurrent brain tumors.

Previously Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, Dr. Moshel’s clinical interests and neurosurgical abilities extend beyond the treatment of brain tumors. He is experienced in the surgical approaches for skull base and spine tumors and in endoscopic transnasal surgery for pituitary and skull base lesions. His practice also encompasses the surgical treatment of epilepsy and minimally invasive treatment of trigeminal neuralgia.

Dr. Moshel received his Bachelor of Science with Honors from New York University and his M.D. and Ph.D. degrees from State University of New York in Brooklyn, NY. He was elected into the Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) honor society and was the graduate school class valedictorian. His residency and Chief residency training in Neurosurgery were completed at New York University Medical Center and Bellevue Hospital Center in NY, New York. Dr. Moshel also completed advanced fellowship training in Neuro-Oncology, Stereotactic and Skull Base Surgery at New York University Medical Center. He further completed a research fellowship in Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill-Cornell Medical Center.

Dr. Moshel is Board Certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgeons and he is a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, North American Skull Base Society, AANS/CNS Joint Section on Tumors and Joint Section on Disorders of the Spine. He is actively involved in the training and mentoring of neurosurgical residents and serves as a reviewer for the Scientific Program Committee of the AANS Tumor Section. Additionally, Dr. Moshel has visited with several internationally renowned neurosurgeons and received numerous awards for his academic excellence and neurosurgical research including grant support from the American Cancer Society. As an active contributor to neurosurgical research, he has published many scholarly articles in the Journal of Neurosurgery, Neurosurgery and Epilepsia. He has also authored several book chapters on advances in stereotactic and minimally invasive spine and brain surgery.
