The brain is what makes us who we are. When the brain is affected by a medical problem, a person’s life changes. Memories, thinking, and relationships can all be negatively impacted.
I chose to specialize in brain surgery to help people recover from conditions that can hurt the mind. As a brain surgeon, I am blessed with the opportunity to positively impact the lives of many people and their loved ones.
I see patients who have brain tumors, including meningiomas, glioblastomas, astrocytomas, acoustic neuromas, and pituitary tumors. I also manage metastatic brain tumors.
I perform craniotomy, which is the removal of a brain tumor using microsurgical tools, and Gamma Knife radiosurgery, in which highly precise radiation therapy is used to destroy tumors.
My approach to treatment is less is more. Minimally invasive surgical techniques and radiosurgery are effective care approaches that also protect the brain.
I perform microvascular decompression surgery to relieve the symptoms of trigeminal neuralgia, which causes facial pain, and hemifacial spasm, a neuromuscular disorder that affects one side of the face.
In addition to seeing patients, I am an active member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, the Acoustic Neuroma Society, and the Facial Pain Association.
