Patients and physicians seek the team’s expertise in caring for complex brain conditions such as brain aneurysms, brain tumors, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), hemorrhages, and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). The team also specializes in treating spinal conditions including: neck and back pain, radiculopathy, stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and spinal deformities, from the most straightforward to the most complex.

The team also focuses on providing specialized care in the field of pediatric neurosurgery. They often treat pediatric brain and spine tumors, hydrocephalus, spasticity, vascular lesions, spina bifida, and other congenital conditions.
