I am an Associate Professor of Neurological Surgery at Columbia University Medical Centre.
After completing my neurosurgical training at Johns Hopkins University, Columbia University and the University of Utah, my focus has been exclusively on the care of children.
My research interests in the immunology of pediatric brain tumors and biomechanics of the pediatric spine.
For family convenience, I see patients in multiple office locations including Manhattan, NY; Ridgewood, NJ; Paterson, NJ; and Stamford, CT.
Special Interests include pediatric spinal instrumentation ( congenital malformations, trauma and deformity), pediatric spasticity (rhizotomy and Baclofen pumps), brain tumors, and neuroendoscopy.
