About Me

I’m a neurosurgeon specializing in pain and functional neurosurgical disorders. I received my medical training at Loyola University and completed my neurosurgery residency and functional neurosurgery fellowship at the University of Iowa. Prior to joining The Ohio State University, I was the director of the pain and functional program at Houston Methodist, where I also received the Teacher of the Year Award for the 2018-2019 academic year.

My research focuses on using neuroimaging techniques to better identify and predict patients who may benefit from neuromodulation therapy earlier in their treatment. In addition, my research interests include device development and predictive modeling of stimulation therapy and how that improves the localization of device placement. During my time at the University of Iowa, I received an inventor award for our team’s work on developing a new spinal cord stimulator.

As a neurosurgeon, I use forms of stimulation, drug delivery, surgical techniques or ablative treatments to provide symptom improvement and better quality of life. Thanks to the cutting-edge therapies and state-of-the-art facilities at The Ohio State University, I’m able to provide the best treatment options for my patients and pass on my knowledge to medical students, residents and fellows at the Wexner Medical Center.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 11/01/2020, Dr. Dalm has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
