  • I am a cerebrovascular and endovascular neurosurgeon. I am proud to say that my career has led me to a place where I can offer surgical, endovascular and radiosurgical options to patients with cervical, spinal and intracranial vascular disease. In an era where endovascular therapies frequently replace surgical ones, I like to be very clear that each patient is too unique to place in to one basket. I am passionate about patient interaction so that the correct therapies can be tailored to the patient. Some times that means no therapy at all.
