Seton Brain & Spine Institute Neurosurgery

My Passion for Healthcare

I have been in practice for over 40 years. I served in Vietnam during my residency as a flight surgeon. Back then it was not neurosurgery alone, we had to know all aspects of surgical medicine. I have a passion for teaching and passing on the knowledge I have acquired through all of these years. I serve patients for anything from traumas to elective, spinal decompressions and fusions but I really enjoy cerebrovascular surgery for AVMs, aneurysms and moyamoya disease.

  2. Surgery for Hydrocephalus
  3. Cerebrovascular Surgery

My Clinical Focus

I am passionate about patients with disabling spine conditions who are literally unable to walk, this creates some of our greatest challenges. To have a patient who was partially paralyzed walk into the office after surgery gives one a sense of real happiness. No matter how many times I see it, it's like the first time. While aneurysms and tumors are in many ways what we prefer to treat especially, due to the many years required to develop these intricate skills, it's the more common crippling conditions of the spine that in the long run we as physicians derive the most satisfaction
