We understand how overwhelming and confusing it can be to get a diagnosis that requires neurosurgery. Getting a second opinion is always a good idea, and we are available as a resource. There are many advanced imaging techniques and minimally invasive procedures available today, and any patient would be wise to get a second opinion from another neurosurgeon.

- Acoustic neuromas
- Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs)

- Neurocognitive conditions
- Pediatric neurologic conditions
- Peripheral nerve conditions and neurostimulators
