I would like to thank you for being a Kaiser Permanente member and for your interest in learning more about my background. I will strive to provide the complete care and compassion that you seek, and I hope to honor the trust and confidence you place in me.
Having spent much of my childhood in Southern California, I feel privileged to practice medicine in my hometown and to serve my community. My father, who was a family physician, had great influence on my career decision. I also owe much of my success to the support of my mother, and my two sisters—who are both involved in the medical field. My experiences in high school athletics and employment as an X-ray technician during my undergraduate years, led me to a career in orthopedic surgery.
My subspecialty training focused upon the treatment of complex fractures, malunions, and nonunions. I have a special interest in the post-traumatic reconstruction of adult orthopedic deformities.
Success as a physician requires balance with my personal interests and family. I enjoy exercising, hiking, photography, listening to music, and spending quality time with my wife and two children.
