Neurosurgeon at Atlantic NeuroSurgical Specialists

Meet Dr. Jonathan J. Baskin

Dr. Jonathan Baskin is a board certified neurosurgeon with fellowship-training in complex spinal surgery. Since joining Atlantic Neurosurgical Specialists (ANS) in 1999, Dr. Baskin has acquired a broad experience in caring for patients with spinal problems related to degenerative arthritic disease (spinal stenosis or herniated discs), disruption of normal spinal mechanical stability (traumatic and osteoporotic fracture injury), and tumors of the spinal cord and spinal column.

Consultations with new patients typically last 45 minutes, during which a thorough clinical history is obtained and neurological examination performed. Imaging studies are reviewed with patients and relevant findings explained in clear and understandable terms. Following this, an individualized care plan is developed that preferentially considers non-operative treatments where possible. If surgical intervention is deemed necessary, minimally-invasive approaches are fully exploited before larger surgical approaches entertained.

At ANS, we are proud of our nearly 60 year history as a community based private practice that has always offered the most current and compassionate care for our patients. Although we are surgical specialists, we are dedicated to optimizing our patients’ quality of life utilizing the least invasive means available.

Dr. Baskin is part of the team that makes up Atlantic NeuroSurgical Specialists.

  • I had an MRI that showed a significant herniation to one of my lower disks. This herniation "poked" on a nerve causing constant pain down my right leg. I saw Dr. Baskin who explained my options, and I decided to go ahead with surgery. Now a mere six days post-op, I have my sanity and life back because the pain is gone. Dr. Baskin is an extremely skilled surgeon … and a very nice person as well.
