About

Bio

I am an experienced brain and spine surgeon with more than 20 years and 5000 surgeries under my belt. My focus is on minimally invasive techniques and microsurgery, to get optimal results. I bring compassion, honesty and the best of modern technology to your care, along with a promise to take care of you the way I would want my own family cared for. I have a career of proven excellent outcomes, and I will do my very best for you.
