Current Ongoing Research Projects:

  1. Use of diffusion tensor imaging to map cranial nerves around tumors particularly meningioma and acoustic neuroma/vestibular schwannoma
  2. Impact of minimally invasive keyhole retrosigmoid approaches on postoperative pain, hospital length of stay, and overall recovery
  3. Use of minimally invasive keyhole middle fossa approach for the repair of encephaloceles and CSF leak
