Care Philosophy

I strongly believe that a neurosurgeon's ultimate responsibility is to ensure the safety of the patients under his care. In my opinion, this is best achieved with strict attention to detail and adherence to community standards of care. I also believe in open and honest communication between the doctor and the patient. Oftentimes, especially in the field of neurosurgery, there are many different potential treatments or surgeries for a given condition. I therefore think it is essential to incorporate the patient's desires into any treatment or surgical plan, especially after a thorough discussion outlining all of the treatment options. My patients are my top priority, and I take pride in doing everything possible to ensure they have a successful outcome while under my care.

In My Own Words

My desire to become a doctor and then a neurosurgeon stemmed from a love for science and technology in my childhood, as well as a passion for community service and helping others in need. While in college and medical school, I observed several brain and spine surgeries and was awed by the technical skill and precision required to perform such intricate procedures. I also enjoy contributing to the advancement of the field through innovation in surgical techniques and technology.  There is truly no better feeling in the world than seeing one of your patients have a successful outcome and knowing that you contributed to their success. My special clinical interests include:  Minimally-invasive spine surgery, degenerative spinal conditions, revision spine surgery and spinal deformity surgery, spinal tumors, primary brain tumors, metastatic tumors to the brain and spine, meningiomas and benign skull base tumors, aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations. In my free time I enjoy rock climbing, mountaineering, hiking and international travel.
