Dr. Roth is a board-certified neurosurgeon and founding member of North Jersey Brain and Spine Center, the prestigious, multi-specialized group of neurosurgeons located in Bergen County NJ. He is the Chairman of Neurosurgery at Hackensack University Medical Center and the Founding Chair of Neurosurgery at New Jersey’s newest medical school, The Seton Hall School of Medicine. He has managed the Neurosurgery Residency Program at HUMC for nearly twenty years, served as a perennial teacher of third year medical students, and regularly mentors high school and college students interested in a career in medicine.
Dr. Patrick Roth is calling on doctors and patients "to be better" by embracing the "soft skills" of narrative-based medicine in spite of conventional, evidence-based medicine. He is pleading for a slower approach, one that requires active listening, compassion, introspection, humility, and sharing on both parts.
This, he believes, will restore the critical role of the patient’s own story in the healing process. This, he believes, will better our healthcare system by reducing misdirection and overtreatment by doctors.

Patrick Roth, M.D. believes that most of what you have been told about back pain is completely wrong. In The End of Back Pain, Dr. Roth introduces a novel way of both conceptualizing and treating back pain.
Pain is explored within the context of a dynamic brain/body relationship. A method of treating back pain by strengthening a set up muscles referred to as the “hidden core” is introduced which features the use of kettlebells. The book also features a diagnose yourself section, a surgeon’s perspective of conservative and surgical treatments for back pain, and a prediction of how back pain will be treated in the next decade.
