About Me

I’m an associate professor in the Department of Neurological Surgery, and the director for the Minimally Invasive Cranial Surgery Program. I’m one of only a few neurosurgeons in the world who have performed more than 1,000 Endoscopic Endonasal Approach (EEA) cases. EEA is a minimally invasive surgery technique that gives surgeons access to the base of the skull, intracranial cavity and top of the spine by operating through the nose and paranasal sinuses. I was rated in the top 10 percent of physicians in the nation for patient satisfaction in 2016 and 2017.

My current research focus is on developing minimally invasive approaches to the brain and skull base that will result in the best surgical tumor resection possible with the least amount of disruption to normal tissue. Finding a patient treatment option that reduces the amount of long-term consequences for my patients and their families is always my top priority.

Our individualized patient approach, combined with world-renown research methods, make the OSUCCC – James such a fulfilling place for me to work. There are very few places that offer the types of highly specialized surgery we do. That’s why patients come here from all over the world for our uniquely personal and focused care.

My medical journey began in Brazil, where I attended medical school and finished my residency in 2005. I completed fellowships in neuroendocrine and pituitary surgery at the University of Virginia, and another in skull base and cerebrovascular surgery at the University of Pittsburgh. I’m so proud to be part of the OSUCCC – James and believe strongly in our mission to live in a cancer-free world.
