Advanced Neurosurgery Associates (ANA) Launches New Office In Morristown

July 7, 2014 – Morristown, NJ – Dr. Arno Fried and Advanced Neurosurgery Associates have announced the opening of their newest office in Morristown, New Jersey.

Set to open this summer, the Morristown branch, the latest ANA office and the practice’s seventh, is conveniently located directly across the street from Morristown Medical Center. With a newly created state-of-the-art space, it is specially designed for children and family comfort. In addition to our compassionate and high-quality care, the office also features a conference and seminar room for educational seminars and events designed for the medical community.

“We are mindful that the child is the most important person in the room. We wanted our pediatric patients to feel they are in a secure place, not simply thrust into a clinic or hospital setting,” said Dr. Lawrence Daniels of ANA. Dr. Daniels points out the importance of a playroom and comfortable home-like setting in the Morristown office as a uniquely sensitive measure for the understandably anxiety-prone pediatric patients.

Advanced Neurosurgery Associates, P.C. (ANA) is a premier, family-centered pediatric neurosurgery practice with offices throughout New Jersey and New York. ANA’s new full-time medical office located in Morristown features 24/7 availability to see all urgent consults, in addition to scheduled appointments, at its pediatric neurosurgery practice.

ANA provides world-class care for a comprehensive range of neurological pediatric and adult conditions. ANA surgeons are trained at major academic institutions, work in a collaborative team effort and provide the highest standard of care in a community setting at all seven of our locations throughout New Jersey and New York.

Among other conditions, the surgeons at ANA treat brain tumors, hydrocephalus, epilepsy, vascular malformations, craniofacial disorders, spasticity, spina bifida and tethered cord syndrome.

ANA was founded by Dr. Arno Fried, a nationally recognized leader and innovator in pediatric neurosurgery. Dr. Fried specializes in all aspects of pediatric neurosurgery, especially brain tumors, epilepsy, head trauma, and hydrocephalus. He has successfully performed over 500 epilepsy surgeries. Dr. Fried’s clinical and administrative appointments include Chairman of the Neuroscience Institute at Hackensack University Medical Center (HUMC), recently ranked by U.S. News & World Report among the top 50 children’s hospitals in the country for 2014-15, making it the only children’s hospital in New Jersey to be ranked in Neurology and Neurosurgery.

Also on staff at the Morristown office are:

Dr. Lawrence Daniels joined ANA following his fellowship training at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
