  • arachnoid cysts (cysts located between the brain and spinal cord and the arachnoid membrane)
  • Chiari malformation (a condition where the lower part of the brain pushes down into the spinal canal)
  • syringomyelia (the development of a fluid-filled cyst in the spinal cord).

He has expertise in microsurgical techniques and routinely performs spinal decompression operations, fusions or disc replacements for conditions such as:

  • nerve root compression in the neck and lower
  • spinal cord compression
  • disc herniations (slipped discs) in the neck and lower back
  • lumbar spinal stenosis (the narrowing of the spinal canal)
  • cervical spine degenerative disease
