Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

My practice exists to provide compassionate, state-of-the-art neurosurgical care for patients with neurological disorders that are amenable to surgical intervention. We are exceptionally skilled in the operating room and highly experienced in diagnosing brain and spine problems. We also have a strong belief in providing nonsurgical options for the conservative treatment of back pain when appropriate. We understand that each patient comes with a unique set of circumstances that are influenced by our social and cultural experiences. As a result, we believe that the doctor-patient relationship needs to be built on trust and mutual respect. Our staff is extremely courteous and attentive to the individual needs of each patient. Your overall well-being is paramount in our treatment goals.Read more
