Personal


Dr. Seun’s practice is dedicated to quality, care and trust. As a second-generation surgeon, he was taught "primum noncere" (first, do no harm) by his father. Training at the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Columbia and Yale Universities, Dr. Seun honed his technical surgical performance to the safest and highest standards. But he also never forgot that a quality outcome is determined by the right surgical procedure performed at the right time.

Dr. Seun practices medicine with a personal, light-hearted and easy-going demeanor. He is married with two children and resides in Monmouth County. In his spare time, Dr. Seun enjoys a good round of tennis and working with technology, particularly videography and editing.
