Hi, my name is Ed Yoo. I am happy to share a glimpse into my personal history and the skills and interests that are important to my medical practice.
I am a native Californian, born in Los Angeles and raised in Orange County. I completed my education and training in Philadelphia. I met my wife and had three beautiful children while on the East Coast. It was important to me to return to California where I could raise my family and contribute to the community where I was raised.
As a pediatric general surgeon, I am privileged to care for patients ranging from newborn infants to young adults. My practice encompasses complex gastrointestinal surgery, pediatric oncology, newborn congenital anomalies, chest wall deformities, inflammatory bowel disease, hernia surgery, and ano-rectal malformations. I have a personal interest in minimally invasive surgery and have incorporated its use into a broad scope of my practice.
Living in California, I try to take advantage of year-round opportunities our beautiful state has to offer. I enjoy mountain biking along local mountain trails and am continually cultivating my green thumb by working on my California-native garden year round.
