Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ziu "After graduating from medical school, I worked in a lab at Harvard Medical School with world-renowned researchers focused on finding new therapies for the treatment of brain tumors. During the residency, I trained in all aspects of evaluation and surgical treatment of all diseases of the brain and spine. My interest in neuro-oncology prompted me to pursue further training at MD Anderson Cancer Center, where I learned more advanced techniques for surgical treatment of brain, spine, pituitary gland and skull base tumors. I enjoy teaching and mentoring medical students and residents."
