  • A board certified neurosurgeon in both general and pediatric neurosurgery, I am currently in private practice as the President and Founder of Advanced Neurosurgery Associates (ANA), directing the pediatric neurosurgery division. I began my career at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) followed by an appointment at the Cleveland Clinic. I have completed fellowships in pediatric neurosurgery as well as research fellowships in brain tumors and hydrocephalus with the American Cancer Society. I specialize in all aspects of pediatric neurosurgery and intracranial surgery in adults and children, especially for brain tumors, epilepsy and minimally invasive endoscopic brain surgery.

    Advanced Neurosurgery Associates (ANA) provide world-class care for a comprehensive range of neurological conditions for adults, children, their caregivers and families. ANA combines compassion with the latest research and technology in neurological medicine in providing the most effective, state-of-the-art treatment available. Renowned locally, nationally, as well as globally, ANA provides an unparalleled level of expertise in the field of adult and pediatric neurosurgery.

    At ANA, there is no standard approach. Patient-centered care is the unique approach endeavored for each individual patient and family.

    With finessed skill, an expert level of knowledge, and almost 60 years of combined experience, the ANA medical team diagnoses and surgically treats individuals suffering from a spectrum of neurological conditions. The ANA surgeons, all trained at major academic institutions, work in a collaborative team effort to provide the highest standard of care in a community setting. The hallmark of the ANA approach is commitment to patient care, research and advocacy resulting in an unparalleled level of medical expertise.
