About me

Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this opportunity to introduce myself to you and tell you a little about me. I have been a physician with Kaiser Permanente since 1998, and currently serve as the assistant chief of the Department of Orthopedics. I consider myself blessed to be working with an outstanding group of orthopedic surgeons in a top-notch organization.

Biography

I grew up in Torrance with two younger sisters, one of whom is also a Kaiser Permanente physician. My father was an engineer in the defense industry and my mother was a secretary. After graduating from South Torrance High in 1983, I attended Harvard University where I studied biochemistry. It was there that I first developed my interest in medicine and orthopedics, as I completed by senior honors thesis on the properties of collagenase, an enzyme implicated in the loss of cartilage during arthritis. I returned home to California for medical school and orthopedic training. While at UCLA, I was able to continue my research studies, working on a gene therapy protocol for creating bone healing cells. I completed my training with a fellowship in hand surgery, and have been with Kaiser Permanente since then.

About my practice

I am fortunate to be part of a multidisciplinary team of health care providers. This allows me to focus my practice on the hand and upper extremity. In particular, I coordinate the hand fracture clinic, which oversees the care of thousands of upper extremity fractures each year. I am a part of the larger orthopedic team, which consists of an outstanding group of orthopedic surgeons (all of whom subspecialize in an area of expertise), physician assistants, orthopedic technicians, medical assistants, and nurses.

How I thrive

I have a wonderful family that keeps my body and spirit energized. My wife, two children (although they are now adults), and I enjoy vacationing at any sunny beachside locale, and go to Mammoth Lakes each summer where we fish, hike, and mountain bike. We are avid sports fans and regularly attend Angels and Ducks games, (and still hold out hope for an NFL team in Anaheim). When my kids left for college, I decided to further my own education by enrolling in law school. I am now in the part-time evening program at Western State University School of Law, but I am doing this purely for personal enrichment and have no intention of leaving my medical practice.
