I joined WellStar Neurosurgery in August 2010, after spending three years as an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at Emory University. I attended medical school at Loyola University Chicago, Stritch School of Medicine. I completed my internship In General Surgery at Loyola University Medical Center, where I was named Resident (intern) of the Year in 2001. I completed my six year Neurosurgery Residency at Loyola University Medical center. I have specialty training in complex spinal disease, adult spinal deformity, and spinal oncology. I have training In advanced neuro-oncology techniques for removing brain tumors safely, and In some patients, without making a large incision. I use high definition scopes and video to remove some tumors through small "key-hole" openings in the skull or sinuses. My approach to neurosurgery is best described as patient centered. I spend time with my patients, and I talk to them, not at them.
