Personal Statement

I am proud to be one of the few physicians in the world who is board-certified in both neurology and neurological surgery, and perhaps the only one also fellowship-trained in neuro-oncology. My neuro-oncology practice focuses on management of complex benign and malignant tumors of the brain and spine. My neurosurgical practice is dedicated to the use of a noninvasive technology called "stereotactic radiosurgery" to treat  without pain or hospitalization  tumors affecting the brain and spine, arteriovenous malformations and trigeminal neuralgia.
