    Clinical Professor, Neurosurgery

    Bio             I grew up in New York City where I attended the oldest school in the Country, Collegiate, from 2nd grade to high school.  I then went to college at Harvard, receiving both a BA and MA, and Medical School at Yale.  Along the way I did graduate work in Neurobiology at Stanford.  I then returned to New York City and did an internship and neurosurgical residency at the Neurological Institute.  I was then given a wonderful opportunity to do a one year traveling Peripheral Nerve Fellowship in which I spent time at the University of Toronto in Canada and time at Louisiana State University in New Orleans.  I then joined the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Washington in Seattle.  There between 1991 and 2011 I rose through the academic ranks eventually becoming a Professor and Director of the Peripheral Nerve Center, as well as Acting Head of the section of neurosurgery at the Puget Sound VA Health Care System.  I then moved to UCSF in 2012 where I headed up their peripheral nerve effort and established their Center for Evaluation and Surgical Management of Peripheral Nerve Disorders.  In the summer of 2014 I moved to join the Department of Neurosurgery at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine as Professor and Director of the Peripheral Nerve Center.  During the past year I was asked to serve as interim Chair of the Department of Neurosurgery when the Chair, a close friend and colleague, suddenly died.  At Northwestern I continue to pursue and develop my interests in the following areas:  pushing the frontiers of peripheral nerve surgery by pioneering new imaging and surgical techniques; teaching residents and medical students; collaborating with clinical and research colleagues; and continuing my ongoing interest in biotechnology by taking ideas from their inception into the clinical arena.  I am currently working part-time in the Dept of Neurosurgery at Stanford.  I remain very interested in finding ways to use the internet as a platform to educate patients and improve their care.  I also am dedicated to improving the overall patient experience.
