General Surgery; University of California at San Francisco, Pacific Presbyterian Medical Center, New York University School of Medicine
Has carried on a very extensive and diversified practice for almost forty years in almost every aspect of neurological surgery. This includes considerable diagnostic experience evaluating patients clinically as well as their imaging studies and following them either with or without operative intervention. Conditions have included tumors of the brain, spine, and peripheral nerves; vascular problems such as aneurysms, AVMs, TIAs, occlusions, abscesses, meningitis, degenerative diseases, herniated cervical, thoracic and lumbar discs; spondylosis; spondylolisthesis; spinal instability; limb, spinal, and cranial pain; trauma; congenital problems; normal pressure hydrocephalus; and many others. As a result of teaching and attending many conferences and courses in the United States and internationally, frequent consultations with colleagues, and constant reading, I have tried to remain on the forefront of neurosurgical thinking. In recent years I have focused primarily on spinal problems. I have performed many Independent Medical Examinations and peer reviews and have reviewed malpractice and other legal cases both for the plaintiff and the defense.
