About Me

I’m a neurosurgeon specializing in all types of spine disorders, including scoliosis and deformity surgery, degenerative conditions, spine trauma and minimally invasive spine surgery. I received my medical training at the University of Minnesota and completed my neurosurgery residency at the University of Iowa. Additionally, I completed a fellowship in complex and minimally invasive spine surgery at Rush University in Chicago.

I’m actively working on research projects focusing on mechanisms that cause spinal degeneration, including how disorders such as Parkinson’s disease can lead to spine issues. My research also explores how to optimally treat these degenerative spine conditions. I serve as an educator for residents and medical students. I received The Ohio State University Lawrence Mervis Teacher of the Year Award for the 2017-2018 academic year. On football gameday, I also cover The Ohio State University football team and provide care for players suffering from head and spine injuries.

What I enjoy most about my work at The Ohio State University is educating residents and medical students in the neurosurgery department. By working with them, I’m able to inspire the next surgeons and help them provide positive outcomes to all of their patients.
