About me

Hi! My name is Elisabeth, but you can call me Lisa.


I was born and raised in Wrightwood, California. I attended college at UC Irvine and completed a double major in biological sciences and chemistry. I then went to medical school at the University of Virginia School of Medicine—go Hoos! I completed my general surgery training at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona. Finally, I finished my training in colorectal surgery at the Cleveland Clinic in Florida. I am board-certified in both general surgery and colorectal surgery. Prior to joining Kaiser Permanente, I practiced with Pasadena Colon and Rectal Surgery, Inc., and the UC San Diego Health System. My goal is to practice colorectal surgery with an indomitable spirit for innovation and clinically relevant advancement in the fields of colorectal surgery, endoscopy, and minimal access surgery by delivering compassionate, high quality, and timely surgical care.

About my practice

I joined the Department of Surgery at Kaiser Permanent Los Angeles Medical Center in July of 2014, and serve as chief of colorectal surgery and director of the minimally invasive surgery center. I value being able to spend time with my members. Unfortunately, that aspect of being a physician and surgeon was proving more and more difficult in the traditional model of health care. It’s been wonderful to transition back into a model of health care that supports and encourages a physician-member relationship. It’s an honor and privilege for me to help you maintain or improve your health.I am a colorectal surgeon. My partners and I all work together as a team to help you return to health. We can serve you in a variety of areas including general colorectal health, colon and rectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulitis, rectal prolapse, hemorrhoids, anal fissures, hemorrhoids, anal dysplasia, anal cancer, and accidental bowel leakage.

How I thrive

I find balance when I collaborate with other health care providers with the common goal to improve the quality and outcome of surgical techniques by way of reflection and innovation. I try to maintain a state of perpetual reflection, often asking myself, "What could we have done to make it even better?"
