Welcome to my Web page. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and our members, and I look forward to working with you to care for your hip, knee, and joint health.
I lived in the Northeast and New England for a number of years, going to college and medical school there and finishing my orthopedic residency in New York. I moved to California to further my training in joint replacement surgeries.
As we live longer and get older, many of us develop arthritis pain in our knees and hips, and often the condition is so bad that it requires joint replacement surgery. I feel empowered to be able to perform surgeries that can take away the pain and help get people back to their work, leisure, and other activities.
Even though I live a busy work life, I take my own health seriously. I try to have at least three sessions of rigorous exercise every week. I enjoy jogging, swimming, and taking walks. I also like browsing at farmers markets and trying out different restaurants.
