Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Hi, I am Dr. Edward Mun, a general surgeon and a bariatric surgeon at Kaiser Permanente South Bay Medical Center. Welcome to my page.
I was born in South Korea but later moved to Torrance, CA with my family. I was able to experience two years of high school in the South Bay before heading East for college and training. I attended Yale University and Harvard Medical School for my education. I did my surgical residency and fellowship in Boston, and ended up staying at Harvard Medical School as an academic surgeon for over 13 years. However, I always missed my family and the beautiful California weather. Despite several previous failed attempts at coming back to California, I finally moved back in 2009, to my hometown. I am very happy to be back in the South Bay and thoroughly enjoy every day here.
My mission in life is to provide high-quality surgical care to my patients. I have particular interests in minimally invasive general surgeries: hernias of all kinds, as well as colon, gallbladder, stomach, and other gastrointestinal procedures, and particularly weight-loss operations for obesity. I strive to remain a caring surgeon with the professional expertise and technical skills needed in my field.
Traveling, golfing, hiking, cycling, swimming, and running are the things that tend to relax me when I'm not working. I enjoy taking full advantage of SoCal weather.
