I’m the director of the Skull Base and Pituitary Surgery Programs at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. I joined The Ohio State University in 2010 and became a professor in 2017.

My medical journey began in Brazil, where I attended medical school and finished my residency. I completed a fellowship in neuroendocrine and pituitary surgery at the University of Virginia and another in skull base and cerebrovascular surgery at the University of Pittsburgh.

I specialize in brain and skull base tumors and I am a pioneer in endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA) and other minimally invasive techniques for brain tumor removal. I’m one of only a few neurosurgeons in the world who have performed more than 1,000 EEA cases. This technique allows surgeons to access the base of the skull, the intracranial cavity and the top of the spine by operating through the nose and paranasal sinuses.

My current research focuses on developing minimally invasive approaches to the brain and skull base that will result in the best surgical tumor resection possible with the least amount of disruption to normal tissue. Additionally, my clinical interests include skull-base tumors, malignant and pituitary tumors; adenomas; skull-base defects; meningiomas, chordomas, chondrosarcomas, craniopharyngiomas; and more. I am also specialized in the surgical treatment of trigeminal neuralgia and hemifacialspasms via minimally invasive approaches.

Our individualized patient approach, combined with opportunities for research, make The Ohio State University a very fulfilling place to work. There are few places that offer the types of highly specialized surgery we do, and I’m proud to be a part of our patients’ care.
