About me

I grew up in Massachusetts as the son of two immigrants: my father is from Nigeria and my mother is from Germany. My father came from humble beginnings, but he knew from an early age that he wanted to be a surgeon. After college he received a scholarship to study medicine in Germany, where he met my mother. Together they immigrated to the United States, where my two siblings and I were born. While attending college in Boston, I met my future wife, who was born and raised in Honolulu. She patiently endured several cold winters on the East Coast as I completed my medical education, with the promise that we would eventually settle in Hawaii.

About my practice

As the son of two doctors, I was exposed to the joys of medicine at an early age. I loved watching the great relationships that parents and children had with my mother, a primary care pediatrician. I was also impressed with the calm confidence that my father displayed in the operating room as a cardiothoracic surgeon. I was introduced to the field of orthopedic surgery when I injured myself playing lacrosse in college. As my surgeon patiently described the procedure by which he would repair the injury and restore my function, my fear and disappointment turned into resolve and hope. It was at this moment that I knew I’d found my specialty! In my practice I enjoy working with my hands, just as my first orthopedic surgeon did. My clinical interests center on orthopaedic trauma (fractures) and total hip replacement. I am a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the Hawaii Orthopaedic Association, and the Orthopaedic Trauma Association. I have given presentations at professional meetings and published articles in professional journals on a variety of topics within the field of orthopaedics. The Hawaii Permanente Medical Group offers everything that I was looking for in a medical practice, including a collegial working environment, the opportunity to provide the highest quality of care, and the opportunity to conduct research that will advance the practice of orthopedic surgery, all in a place where my family is happy to be living! I strive to do my very best for my patients at each step of the way, not just during the procedure itself but also prior to surgery and during the recovery process as well.

How I thrive

My current athletic endeavors include running, basketball, and weight lifting. I am also looking forward to swimming and biking across this beautiful island. I still root for my home teams -- go Pats, Celtics, and Sox! Outside of work I enjoy going to the beach, hiking, and dancing with my wife and two daughters.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select practitioners and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business and uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

A narrow network is defined as a tailored, tiered or high-performance network that has 80 percent or less overlap with a health plan’s broadest network offered to a member in any type of plan offered by that health plan. Kaiser Permanente does not have a narrow network with respect to its Marketplace plans. Members enrolled in Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) Marketplace plans have access to the same provider networks as members enrolled in all other KFHP plans.
