Additional Information

I am an experienced neurosurgeon board certified by the ABNS since 1998, active in both academic and private settings. My practice has focused primarily on adult patients addressing general neurosurgical care including trauma, tumor and degenerative spine. My legal work today has been primarily for the defendant although I have reviewed and offered opinions in plaintiff cases as well. In addition to clinical care I have been involved in multiple research efforts and have been active on the national neurosurgical level both educational and political efforts.
