I’m a neurosurgeon specializing in neuromodulation, functional neurosurgery and focused ultrasound. These techniques improve patients’ quality of life through electrical stimulation, targeted drug delivery or ablation to the brain, spinal cord and nerves. I received my medical degree at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, and I completed my residency in neurological surgery at the Medical University of South Carolina. I also finished a fellowship in functional neurosurgery at the University of Toronto. Currently, I serve as an assistant professor in the Department of Neurological Surgery and director of the Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery Fellowship.
As a clinician-scientist, I perform neuroimaging research to improve and advance patient care, including both imaging-based therapeutics and advanced diagnostics. My research focuses on the translational applications of neuroimaging relevant to neuromodulation and functional neurosurgery. I also investigate emerging imaging-based therapies, specifically focused ultrasound ablation. Through this research we are improving the precision of neuromodulation therapies and engaged in developing algorithms to personalize treatment by guiding stimulation titration and improve patient selection. My work has been published in numerous scholarly journals, including JAMA Neurology, Movement Disorders, Journal of Neurosurgery, Neurosurgery and NeuroImage: Clinical.
My favorite aspects of working at The Ohio State University are the excellent people and team spirit at work. I’m able to work with leading experts across a wide range of disciplines to improve our patients’ lives and deliver positive outcomes to them. Each patient receives unique and individualized care, and by working as a team, we make excellent care possible.

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 11/21/2019, Dr. Krishna has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
