My interest in science led me to pursue a career in medicine. When I was a medical student, my mentor was the chair of neurosurgery. His enthusiasm for the specialty inspired me to become a neurosurgeon.
I use image guidance and minimally invasive techniques to manage a variety of brain and spine conditions. These include pituitary and spine tumors, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and alignment problems.
I perform Gamma Knife and CyberKnife radiosurgery to remove tumors and manage trigeminal neuralgia, which is when nerve irritation leads to intense, stabbing pain in the face and jaw. I also have training in robotic spine surgery and artificial disc replacement.
I take a conservative approach to treatment. I recommend the least-invasive therapy to achieve the best outcome.
I am a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.
