I am a pediatric neurosurgeon in the Division of Neurosurgery at UAB. My practice is confined strictly to children and I practice at the Children’s Hospital of Alabama. I attended Washington and Lee University for undergraduate studies and the University of Rochester (New York) for medical school. I completed the Neurosurgery residency program at the University of Minnesota and then spent three years doing general and pediatric neurosurgery in the US Navy at Naval Medical Center San Diego. Additional studies were pursued at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Queen Square, London during medical school and residency. I then completed the fellowship in Pediatric Neurosurgery at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
I joined the faculty at UAB in 2000. I am board certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery and the American Board of Pediatric Neurological Surgery. I am a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, the American Academy of Pediatrics and a member of the American Society of Pediatric Neurosurgery. I have authored more than 100 papers on various topics in pediatric neurosurgery and present regularly at national and international conferences on pediatric epilepsy surgery and pediatric neurosurgery. I have been visiting professor at 4 institutions and am frequently invited to chair or coordinate panel discussions or courses.
I participate in the full spectrum of pediatric neurosurgery but have a particular academic interest in the surgical treatment of epilepsy in children, spina bifida, transitional care in spina bifida and public health issues in pediatric neurosurgery.
