He has taught Endoscopic Skull Base Techniques at multiple meetings and courses throughout North America over the past decade and routinely lectures on this topic. His research focuses on minimally invasive techniques to treat complex tumors and disorders of the brain and spine using image guided, endoscopic, cellular and robotic-based systems. Dr. Field is one of the first surgeons in the country to integrate neuro-endoscopy into the management of various forms of neurovascular compression syndromes such as Trigeminal Neuralgia and Hemifacial Spasm and has both lectured and taught nationally on endoscopic microvascular decompression (eMVD) for these disorders. Dr. Field also helped to bring both intraoperative MRI (iMRI) and Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy (LITT) to the region in order to improve the care and expand the treatment options for patients with brain tumors in Central Florida.
