About me

Thank you for taking the time to review my Physician Home Page. I am a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon focusing on Sports Medicine and shoulder surgery.  I love what I do and my goal is to provide the best possible care to patients. I feel fortunate to work in our Orthopedic Surgery Department where we have a tremendously talented staff.

Biography

I am originally from Los Angeles and attended the University of Southern California. In college I developed an interest in Sports Medicine while working as a student athletic trainer with the USC Athletic Medicine Department and as a physical therapist aide at USC University Hospital.  In addition, I have always had an interest in education and after college, I taught high school Biology and Chemistry for 2 years.   After teaching, I moved to beautiful North Carolina where I attended Wake Forest University School of Medicine. I returned to Southern California and completed my Orthopedic Surgery residency at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. After residency, I completed a year-long fellowship at the University of Southern California focusing on sports medicine injuries and complex shoulder surgery. During my return to USC, I worked as an assistant team physician for the various sports including the football, basketball, women's soccer, and men's volleyball teams. Since 2012, I have volunteered as team physician for the USC Men’s Volleyball team.

About my practice

I joined Kaiser Permanente as an Orthopedic surgeon in 2011. Shortly thereafter I became Board Certified and I am currently a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. I am also a member of the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine. In 2017, I was elected as an Associate Member of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons, which is a premier association that is at the forefront of this field of surgery. My practice involves treating shoulder, knee, and other sports-related conditions for patients of varying ages. My philosophy regarding care of patients involves a team approach consisting of nurses, physician assistants, physical therapists, and surgeons. I utilize the best evidence and information available to care for patients and their ailments by continuing to attend annual educational meetings and publishing research articles. It is my responsibility to educate patients regarding their conditions and help guide their treatment by providing non-surgical and surgical options. One of my main focuses is complex shoulder surgery that includes shoulder replacement.

How I thrive

I love what I do, but I try to maintain a balance between work, family, teaching, and having fun. Teaching has been a very integral aspect of my life. I returned to education by volunteering as attending Surgeon and Co-Director of Sports Medicine at Harbor UCLA Medical Center from 2012-2016. This allowed me to train other young surgeons in the field of Sports Medicine. I continue to work with residents who rotate through our hospital as Adjunct Assistant Clinical Professor, from the Keck School of Medicine. When I am not working I enjoy staying active outdoors with my family, grilling, and searching for the best coffee.
