I often take care of patients with potentially devastating diseases, particularly brain aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations. These diseases can seem frightening. This is why I do my best to give patients the information they need to make the best possible decisions about facing these problems. Often, there is no one "right answer." It is my responsibility to help patients review their options and come up the "best answer" for them. The focus of my practice is on diseases of the blood vessels of the brain and spine. I chose this area because of the opportunity of a "win.” For example, if I can treat an unruptured brain aneurysm before it ruptures, I can take a patient from facing potential death or severe disability to being healthy. It is a privilege to have this kind of positive impact on a patient’s life.
