Focus of Work


My clinical and research interests focus on neurosurgical management of patients with brain and spinal cord tumors. I take care of patients with both benign as well as malignant cancer of the brain/spinal cord. In addition, part of my practice is devoted to the care of neurovascular patients, including aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations.
