Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce my practice and myself to you. I feel very fortunate to work with my colleagues and our members at Kaiser Permanente, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health or the health of your loved ones.
I completed medical school at the University of Hong Kong. After receiving basic orthopedic training in Hong Kong, I went to the University of Liverpool in the United Kingdom for advanced training in orthopedic surgery. I am a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Australia. I am interested in children’s orthopedics and received fellowship training at the Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center and Shriners Hospitals for Children. I am an active member of the Pediatric Orthopedic Society of North America. The Orange County Medical Association named me a physician of excellence every year from 2005 to 2016. I also received a physician’s exceptional contribution award from Kaiser Permanente in 2006 and a David Lawrence, MD, Community Service Award in 2010. I have published journal articles on various topics in orthopedics. I am also a clinical associate professor in the Department of Orthopedics at UC Irvine Medical Center.
My practice is focused on children with orthopedic problems that include congenital deformities, neuromuscular disorders, leg-length discrepancy, scoliosis, benign bone tumors, pediatric trauma, rotational and angular deformities of lower extremities, and foot deformities. Member and family education is very important in managing a child’s orthopedic problems. Some conditions require casting and bracing. Some may require surgery. I work closely with pediatric colleagues to optimize the outcomes of orthopedic management.
Physical, mental, and spiritual health are all important to me. I like swimming, dancing, cycling, and video editing. I attend church regularly and serve in different committees in church. Service to others is very important to me. I volunteer in community clinics for low-income patients, and I have led many overseas medical missions to provide orthopedic care for indigent patients in China and Africa.
