WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As a Neurosurgeon with fellowship training in Spine Surgery, I have dedicated my professional life to treating patients with spine disorders. These include spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, scoliosis, herniated discs and spine tumors. I incorporate minimally-invasive spine (MIS) techniques whenever appropriate to minimize pain and length of stay, yet not compromise on achieving the goals of surgery, which is ultimately to get you back to the quality of life you once enjoyed. I was drawn to medicine and neurosurgery for the unique ability to incorporate the latest in technology and neuroscience to making patients better. I will treat you and your loved ones with the same kind of care I would want my loved ones to be treated with. In addition to my clinical practice, I will be working with Duke Bioengineers and Neurobiologists on important basic and translational questions surrounding spinal cord injuries (SCI), which we hope to bring to clinical relevance.

MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I am particularly interested in studying treatments for spinal cord injury, using the latest bioengineering and neuroscience advances to further this. As a surgeon with both bioengineering and a neuroscience background, I will be working with the scientists at Duke to help bring these treatments to help patients. I am also interested in advancing minimally-invasive surgery (MIS) techniques to decrease pain and length of hospitalization so we can get you back to the life you would like to enjoy as fast as possible.
