I treat every patient with respect and great care. I discuss the diagnosis and treatment options in detail and always looks for the most conservative measures first, as many conditions can be treated without surgery.

I provide treatment for degenerative or traumatic conditions of the spine including disk herniation, spinal stenosis and nerve impingement. Additionally, I perform peripheral nerve surgery for carpal tunnel and ulnar nerve release and treats patients with Chiari malformation, brain tumors, hydrocephalus and pseudotumor.

I earned my medical degree at Northwestern University Medical School (Feinberg) in Chicago, Illinois, and completed my residency at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. I am board certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery.
