As the director of Spine Surgery for the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Maryland, I see a large volume of patients with spinal deformity,  degenerative disease, spinal oncology and spine trauma. I frequently perform surgeries that are not capable of being performed in the community hospital setting.   I am nationally recognized as an expert in spine surgery and I regularly am asked to speak at well recognized spine societies, including the American Association of Neurological Surgery, The Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and the ONESpine meetings at the Swedish Neuroscience Institute.
