Ever wonder what neurosurgeons do in their downtime? Some of us play guitar... Here's my take on the classic Deep Purple riff.

Our medical mission to the Dominican Republic was a major success, and definitely provided the opportunity to think about the great good fortune we have to live in the U.S. I've finally had the opportunity to pen a short article about my the trip and my impressions. I hope you find it interesting.

I would like to thank all who attended our
Neurosurgical update for Nurse Practitioners, An Update
On Concussion and Outpatient Spinal Care. The purpose
of the program was to Provide Nurse Practitioners with a
better understanding of how to appropriately diagnose and
treat a concussion. We also educated them as to what their 
role and responsibilities are in the care of patients with
spinal injuries in an outpatient setting.

In May, I had the opportunity to speak about concussions, evaluation, and prevention  to the athletic directors of the Suburban One League. This is a terrific organization doing good things with young athletes
