Greetings! This is the first Web page I've ever had. If you are looking for an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in joint replacement surgery, please read on.
I was born and raised in Southern California, and I’m thrilled to be able to have a practice here in beautiful Orange County. As I look back on my life, it seems like becoming a surgeon was inevitable—I’ve always been intrigued with science, enjoy helping people, and love working with my hands. With three children, family life keeps my wife and me very busy outside of work.
My specialty is joint replacement surgery of the knee and hip. These are gratifying surgical procedures to perform because they can relieve the pain of severe arthritis, allowing people to live their lives more fully. I take tremendous pride in working with a talented and dedicated group of surgeons and staff in the Orthopedic Surgery Department in Orange County. Within Kaiser Permanente, I’m involved in a community of people who are devoted to scientific research and to advancing the quality of clinical care in orthopedic surgery.
My career in medicine is fulfilling, but my relationships and experiences with my family and friends help give my life meaning. To stay physically healthy, I exercise regularly and watch what I eat. Playing the guitar, listening to music, reading, and watching movies help me relax. Practicing and performing with our departmental rock band is another exciting diversion.
