Chairman and a Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of Tennessee and Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
I obtained my Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Arkansas in 1978 before gaining my Medical Degree in 1983 from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. My Internship was completed at the University of Texas Health Science Center in 1984, as was my Neurosurgical Residency, which I completed in 1989. In 1989 I completed a Fellowship in Epilepsy and Functional Neurosurgery at the University of Minnesota, and in 1990 a Pediatric Neurosurgery Fellowship at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. I am certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery and American Board of Pediatric Neurological Surgery.
I am currently a consultant on an NIH program project in investigation cytokines involved in the reparative cascade of events within the central nervous system following injury. Additionally, I am also involved as a principle investigator in a multi-center clinical trial of new programmable shunt valves and involved in the clinical investigation of outcomes following surgery for intractable epilepsy and spasticity.
