Clinical

  • Practice focuses on the surgical treatment of primary and metastatic brain and spine tumors, with an emphasis on motor and speech mapping during surgery and in the treatment of patients with pituitary tumors and minimal invasive approaches of skull base tumors.

Research

  • Research focuses on brain tumors and stem cell migration, healthcare disparities for minorities and clinical outcomes for neurosurgical patients.

Major research accomplishments include:

  • Elucidating mechanisms by which brain tumors migrate
  • Integrating the use of mesenchymal stem cells into local treatment of solid tumors
  • Concomitant use of nanotechnology and focal beam radiotherapy in the systemic treatment of solid tumors
  • Development of new imaging software to help identify areas within solid tumors with the greatest malignant potential
  • Development of innovative, minimally invasive approaches to brain tumor resection
