Dr. Ziu's Care Philosophy

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.

I have undergone advance training through a fellowship in Surgical Neuro-Oncology for treatment of brain tumors and spine tumors. I have extensive experience in mapping the eloquent areas of the brain to identify the motor and language function sites for safer brain tumor surgery. I have an interest in quality improvement of comprehensive care for patients with tumors of the brain and spine.
