I have been interested in how the brain functions and makes us who we are, since my youth. Patients with conditions that impact the brain’s physiology face potential challenges at every level, from thought and cognitive development, to language, to motor function, to sensation, and to personality. I was drawn to my specialty of neurointerventional radiology by the opportunity to actively help such patients, and the ability to do this in working with children in particular, has been enormously gratifying. Conditions that in the past would have led to death or to neurological devastation in infancy are now potentially curable. My courageous patients and their families are an ongoing source of motivation and inspiration for me.
