  • “Every child deserves the chance to live his or her life to its fullest potential.”

“I understand that neurosurgery can be very daunting to families. I work very hard to build trust with the families I see, and I want parents to know that I will spend all the time it takes to address any concerns or questions they might have about the surgery. I want parents to feel safe entrusting me with their child’s care.

In addition to being the best surgeon I can be, I also make sure to let parents know that I have compassion for what they are going through. I want them to know they can come to me with any question they have. There’s no such thing as a silly question.

We are always trying to do more with less in surgery. Whenever possible, we use the most minimally invasive techniques possible. Neurosurgery can solve so many problems, from epilepsy to brain tumors to issues stemming from spinal disorders. The most rewarding part of my work is the ability to make a real difference in a child’s life.”
