Hello welcome to my Web page. I’m looking forward to taking care of you.
I was born (in a Kaiser Permanente hospital) and raised in Orange County. I was salutatorian of Laguna Hills High School and a National Advanced Placement Scholar. Having spent the next 14 years at USC, I am a true Trojan at heart. I was part of the Baccalaureate/MD program at USC, graduating with Summa Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa, and AOA honors. I then trained at the prestigious USC/LAC+USC Medical Center Integrated Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery program, followed by additional training in hand and microsurgery at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital. After a short stint in academic practice in Las Vegas, I returned home to Orange County and happily joined Kaiser Permanente.
My practice includes the full scope of plastic and reconstructive surgery, including complex upper and lower extremity, breast, and facial/nasal reconstruction. My goal is to use current and sophisticated techniques to provide the most cutting edge reconstructive options to my patients. I’m a strong believer in medicine based on evidence, and providing safe and efficient surgical care. In additional to a busy surgical practice I serve as a consultant reviewer and editor for many plastic surgery and hand surgery journals. I’m also an assistant editor for the Plastic Surgery Educational Network.
I enjoy playing ice hockey, baseball, and working out at the gym. My family and I also enjoy discovering new and exciting restaurants. A work-life balance is essential and our family tries to spend time with each other as often as possible.
