Clinical interest for patients

My clinical areas of expertise are cerebral aneurysm surgery, surgery on other vascular lesions (arteriovenous malformations, A-V fistulas, cavernous malformations), surgical management of trigeminal neuralgia, stereotactic radiosurgery (including Gamma Knife) for a variety of intracranial pathologies, including brain metastases and surgery for benign intracranial tumors (such as meningiomas, vestibular schwannomas & colloid cysts)
