Philosophy of care

Children deserve the chance to live their life to its fullest potential. My goal is to remove any neurosurgical obstacle from their path that is within my capabilities. I work with you and your family to achieve the best result for your child.

Why I entered medicine

I entered medicine out of a fascination with the human body and in particular the brain, and to have the ability for one human to heal another.

Community involvement

Global health and international mission trips.

Personal interests

I enjoy spending time with family, traveling and playing music.
