As a physician who is fellowship trained in Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery, my clinical practice focuses on deep brain stimulation, trigeminal neuralgia, cancer pain, and chronic pain. My research interests include local field potential analysis to optimize deep brain stimulator implantation, and determining the spinal mechanisms which underlie pain transmission.
