Brain & spine

vascular malformations

I perform endovascular embolization, microsurgical resection, and radiosurgery for dural arteriovenous fistulas, arteriovenous malformations, and cavernous malformations.

Vascular cranial

neuropathies

I perform microvascular decompression of cranial nerves 5, 7, and 9 for trigeminal neuralgia, hemifacial spasm, and glossopharyngeal neuralgia, respectively. I perform percutaneous trigeminal rhizotomy

Cervical spine

disease

I perform anterior and posterior decompression of the cervical spinal cord and nerve roots. I perform anterior artificial disc replacement, anterior spinal fusion, and posterior spinal fusion.

Lumbar spine

disease

I perform anterior and posterior decompression of the thecal sac and nerve roots. I perform microdiscectomies, laminectomies, and anterior and posterior spinal fusion. I utilize intraoperative, image-guided navigation for spinal instrumentation

Compression

fractures

I perform kyphoplasty for painful compression fractures.

Brain & spine

tumors

I perform biopsy and resection of primary and metastatic brain and spinal tumors. I perform endovascular embolization of hypervascular tumors. I collaborate with Radiation Oncology to plan and deliver stereotactic radiosurgery to brain and spinal tumors.

Subdural

hematomas

I perform evacuation of subdural hematomas and also minimally-invasive endovascular middle meningeal artery embolization for the treatment of chronic subdural hematomas.

Hydrocephalus

I perform lumbar drain trials and implant ventriculo-peritoneal and lumbo-peritoneal shunts for hydrocephalus.

Intracerebral hemorrhage evacuation

I perform minimally-invasive, endoscopic removal of bleeding, or hemorrhage in the brain to help give patients the best chance for recovery.
