Personal Statement

Since my first exposure to neuroscience, I have been captivated by the complexity and uncharted territory of the nervous system. When I saw what a profound role neurosurgeons have in the life of patients with tumors of the brain and spine, I became dedicated to delivering comprehensive care to these patients.

As a neurosurgical oncologist, I know that my role extends far beyond the operating room, and I strive to facilitate and guide all parts of a patient’s treatment. Most importantly, I know I often meet my patients during the most difficult time of their life, and I consider it my honor and privilege to deliver the highest quality of care with compassion and understanding. I use the most advanced techniques available paired with an incredible team of radiation and oncology experts to provide an individualized, tailored treatment plan that works for you and your family.
