  • I graduated from Harvard University in 1986, and subsequently attended medical school at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) School of Medicine. My time in medical school included a one-year laboratory research fellowship in neurosurgery. From 1991 to 1998, I completed my residency in neurosurgery, as well as a combined orthopedic-neurosurgical fellowship in complex spine surgery, both at New York University (NYU) Medical Center in Manhattan. I have been in private neurosurgical practice in Westchester since 1998, and have performed well over 3,000 major operative procedures.

    Since 2005, I have operated Westchester Spine and Brain Surgery, PLLC, a multi-hospital private neurosurgical practice which provides state-of-the-art surgical evaluation and treatment for a wide variety of conditions related to the spine and brain, with emphasis on surgical spine problems such as disc herniations and spinal stenosis, often requiring complex operative treatments such as laminectomies, discectomies, and fusions. I also specialize in innovative techniques such as minimally invasive spinal surgery, computer-guided surgery, and cervical artificial disc placement. I am an attending neurosurgeon at numerous hospitals throughout Westchester and Connecticut, including White Plains Hospital Center, New York Presbyterian-Lawrence Hospital, Montefiore New Rochelle Hospital, St. John’s Riverside Hospital including the Dobbs Ferry Pavilion, Westchester Medical Center, and Stamford Hospital. I was certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery in 2002, and was named a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons in 2004. I am a Fellow of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), as well as an active member of the New York State Neurosurgical Society, where I serve as a member of the Board of Directors, and am also Past-President.

    I am honored to have been recognized by Castle Connolly as a Top Doctor for both 2020 and 2021.
