Jackson Neurosurgery Clinic
I am a neurosurgeon practicing in Jackson Mississippi since 1996. I have performed over 15,000 operations and my practice includes aneurysm surgery, skull base surgery, endoscopic brain surgery, trigeminal neuralgia, complex spine surgery, spinal cord stimulation and sacroiliac joint fusions. I work with several medical device companies as a consultant in the design of new instruments and implants for the spine. I enjoy spending time with my family. We often cook together, swim, and ride bicycles. I enjoy giving back to my community and support a variety of charities including the Batson Children's Hospital and St. Andrews Episcopal School.

The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 35-year-old female asked:
Pseudotumor cerebri: Idiopathic intracranial hypertension or Pseudotumor cerebri is raised pressure in the brain that leads to severe headaches and vision loss. Diamox (acetazolamide) and losing weight under a physician supervised program can reduce or eliminate the high pressure in the brain. If headaches cannot be controlled or the patient is losing vision then optic sheath fenestration or shunting of the CSF is necessary.
A 21-year-old female asked:
Carpal tunnel: Carpal tunnel syndrome is curable. Numbness and tingling in the hand that wakes you up at night is a complaint in over 95% of people with carpal tunnel syndrome. Wrist splints and elbow guards can help at night. Neuropathic medicine and compound cream will reduce the numbness and tingling too. An electromyogram and nerve conduction study will confirm the diagnosis.
A 54-year-old female asked:
Sacroiliitis: The Tarlov cyst is not the cause of symptoms. Rather a compressed lumbar nerve or inflammation of the sacroiliac joint. The sacroiliac joints are located bilaterally at the level of the small dimples in the low back. Pain in this joint is made worse by rising from a seated position, rolling over onto the affected side while in bed, or taking a step up. Apply ice and see a back specialist.
