I’m a neurosurgeon specializing in all types of spine disorders, including scoliosis and complex deformity surgery, robotic spine surgery, 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 scoliosis affect global spine health. My research also explores how to optimally treat these degenerative and deformity spine conditions. I'm the program director for the Neurosurgery Residency Program, as well as the Fellowship Director for our Complex Deformity and Robotic Spine Fellowship. I serve as an educator for residents, medical students, and undergraduate students. I received The Ohio State University Lawrence Mervis Teacher of the Year Award for the 2017-2018 academic year. On football game day, I also help 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 leaders in Neurosurgery, and help them provide positive outcomes to all of their patients.

I find my back issues to be complicated including on those issues relate to my hip replacement, and wish there would have been more discussion about my back issues in lay terms and some holistic conversation as to how hip issues may or may not relate. Some problem w/hip surgeon. Each doc does not want to talk about anything outside very narrow specialty.
