  • 2013 Lawrence Mervis Teacher of the Year Award, Department of Neurological Surgery

I specialize in:

  • Neurological Surgery
  • Minimally Invasive Surgical Procedures
  • Peripheral Nerve Tumor
  • Scoliosis
  • Spinal Diseases
  • Trauma, Nervous System


My expertise is in a highly specialized area of medicine — neurosurgery. Most spinal and nerve ailments do not require surgery, but rather a multidisciplinary treatment approach. At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we work as a team to achieve the best overall health outcomes. As a physician who specializes in complex spinal and peripheral nerve surgery, I understand each individual's unique circumstances and needs. I work closely with our team and with patients every step of the way to prevent and treat nervous system disorders. From diagnosis to follow-up care, I assess and recommend the optimal set of measures for every patient. I enjoy working at Ohio State. It's a privilege to associate with others who value and achieve excellence in health care. Working here allows me to provide cutting-edge treatment and care, while also participating in advancing standards of care through research. In my free time I enjoy relaxing with my family, traveling and playing classical music.
