  • Since the completion of my training in 1998, I have worked at Harvard Medical School to enhance the world-class pediatric neurosurgical service at Children’s Hospital Boston by strengthening clinical and academic collaborations. My leadership and initiative has been instrumental in forging and strengthening relationships between Neurosurgery and multiple other departments to improve patient care and advance the national reputation of our clinical teams. My clinical practice has focused on three areas: craniofacial abnormalities, spinal disorders, and trauma to the pediatric brain and spine. Approximately seventy percent of my time is clinical, twenty percent teaching and 10 percent research. I have been able to take advantage of Children’s tremendous resources to develop an active and complex pediatric neurosurgery practice and to become a leader in multi-disciplinary, collaborative clinical fields linking neurosurgery with subspecialities throughout the hospital. The clinical teams on which I participate have brought out my complementary strengths as a surgeon and team player. I will continue to strive towards clinical excellence by working with others to offer superb care and cutting-edge technology to our patients. My clinical activities continue on the community service front where I am the founder of the Boston chapter, and Chairman of the national Board of Directors, for ThinkFirst National Injury Prevention Program. This passion for clinical excellence and community service has culminated in my role as educator, and I remain passionate about training our clinical and academic leaders of the future.
