"I believe compassion is the essence of neurosurgical care. I strive to be the very best at what I do and offer the best state-of-the-art and technological advanced procedures for patients. I listen and operate only when absolutely necessary. My judgment is shaped by evidence-based practice guidelines and my practice is guided by rigorous analysis of my own neurosurgical outcomes and those of colleagues in my specialty. "
