Biography:

Louis Schwartz, MD is chair of radiation oncology at Overlook Medical Center in Summit, NJ and medical director of the CyberKnife Center - the first of its kind in the northeast United States. He is also a radiation oncologist for The Gerald J. Glasser Brain Tumor Center. Dr. Schwartz has been treating patients at Overlook Medical Center for the past 37 years and was the first radiation oncologist in New Jersey to treat patients with radiosurgery technology starting in 1995.
A pioneer in the field of radiation oncology and radiosurgery, Dr. Schwartz was the first to perform conformal three-dimensional computerized radiation treatment in New Jersey, as well as the first in the state to perform stereotactic radiosurgery to the brain and perform extracranial body radiosurgery.
The CyberKnife technology is used to treat brain and spine tumors, liver, pancreas, lung and prostate tumors. As the longest running program, Dr. Schwartz brings the most extensive knowledge and experience to treating patients with CyberKnife and treats the most brain tumor patients in the NY/NJ/CT tri-state area.
Dr. Schwartz received his medical degree from SUNY Downstate in 1974. He completed his post-graduate training at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City, and he is board certified in radiation oncology and pediatrics.
Dr. Schwartz is included each year on the Castle Connolly, Inc. "Top Doctors" list since 1997 as seen in New Jersey Monthly and New York Magazine.
During his free time, Dr. Schwartz cherishes time with family.
