WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I was inspired to be a doctor by my grandfather, a classic “black bag” physician who practiced family medicine with a grace, compassion, and enthusiasm I strive to emulate. I became interested in the treatment of neurologic illness in college, and pursued this passion to a specialization in the minimally invasive treatment of brain tumors and skull base tumors. When a patient has a brain disorder, they bring to me not just an organ to be fixed, but also their senses, perceptions, and mechanisms that allow them to interact with their world. My goal is to help my patients understand these frightening and disorienting problems, and to create with them a custom treatment strategy to overcome the difficulties. I use the latest advances in minimally invasive neurosurgery to hopefully return them to the activities they most enjoy. Through my research, I hope to devise even better ways to approach these problems in the future. Outside of work, I enjoy being with my wife, our young daughter, and our two miniature schnauzers.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research interests are in minimally invasive neurosurgical device development and neurosurgical robotics. I work at the interface of neurosurgery and engineering in order to develop new tools for performing these delicate operations. Through device development and innovation I hope to pioneer new ways to approach these difficult surgical challenges in order to make neurosurgery safer, gentler, and more minimally invasive for my patients.
