About me

Thank you for visiting my Web page.

Biography

I decided in high school that I wanted to become a physician. About halfway through medical school at UCLA, I chose to pursue what I felt was the most exciting career: surgery. In the early 1990s, I completed training in both pediatric surgery and pediatric urology at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, and worked there for many years before joining Kaiser Permanente. Along the way, I made good friendships with my fellow surgeons, and we enjoyed our lives together both inside and outside the hospital. We water-skied and snow-skied, golfed, and played softball together. Eventually, one of those friends became my wife, who is also a surgeon at Kaiser Permanente. We have two sons who are now grown and out of the house.

About my practice

I am a pediatric surgeon. I provide surgical care to infants, children, and some teens with birth defects and other childhood problems. I specialize in the correction of chest anomalies and birth defects of the intestinal and urinary tracts in infants and children. Kaiser Permanente provides our pediatric surgical team with many resources in order to provide patients the best possible care. Our practice uses numerous minimally invasive techniques, some of which we have pioneered. I believe that we have one of the most advanced pediatric surgical practices in Southern California. This is coupled with our desire to provide compassionate care, easing the fears of children and their families while we push to return their lives to normal as quickly as possible.

How I thrive

I have always been active to keep myself in good physical shape. It is not easy to work long hours and stay alert unless you keep your mind and body fit. While I have enjoyed snow skiing, running, and fishing for many years, I recently became a triathlete. You can be a triathlete without being an Ironman. I enjoy medium-length triathlons, Olympic and shorter, as an incentive to keep myself fit. This sport requires you to swim, bike, and run. I like it because it develops several muscle groups in a balanced approach that is easier on my aging joints!
