Professional Experiences

My professional experience includes performing surgery in several European and South American cities. I have also participated in a spine surgery mission to Uganda, East Africa, where I have treated both children and adults suffering from spinal trauma, scoliosis, tumors, and infection. I have been very active academically and have authored over 100 peer reviewed articles, abstracts, and book chapters pertaining to spine surgery and basic science spine research. I was awarded a grant to study, “ The effects of inflammation on glial fibrillary acidic protein expression in satellite cells of the dorsal root ganglion.” Some of my current research is focused on spinal deformity, the effects of minimally invasive surgical techniques, and complex cervical spine surgery.
