About me

Welcome to my Web page. I'm dedicated to providing you with exceptional orthopedic care. I really do feel very fortunate that I'm living the life I once only dreamed about. I enjoy research in orthopedic surgery, especially in my subspecialty areas of interest: shoulder surgery, cartilage restoration, and orthopedic sports medicine. My other role at Kaiser Permanente is that of regional chief of orthopaedic surgery in the Southern California region, which means I help manage orthopaedic services from San Diego to Santa Barbara. I also help manage all of the perioperative services at the Kaiser Permanente South Bay Medical Center.


I'm proud to be a Hispanic American who was raised in the Los Angeles harbor area of Wilmington and attended the Los Angeles public school system. As a child, it was my dream to become an orthopedist/sports medicine specialist (I even wrote about it in my high school autobiography). Today, I work in the same community where I was raised. A board certified orthopedic surgeon, I have more than 23 years of surgical experience in the operating room. My primary surgical and orthopedic training was at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. I completed a post-residency fellowship program in sports medicine, arthroscopy, and specialized shoulder surgery at the University of Pittsburgh, and I now have more than 17 years of specialization in shoulder surgery, orthopedic sports medicine, and arthroscopy.

About my practice

I enjoy taking a highly personalized approach to caring for my patients. I believe the most important aspects of providing quality care are listening to your needs, preventing musculoskeletal injuries, giving you treatment options, and helping you return to a healthy and active lifestyle. During an initial visit/consultation, you can expect a clear explanation of your condition and concise description of your treatment options. My practice is unique in that I provide advanced expertise in complex shoulder surgery. I'm committed to your care, and I'm always interested in your feedback. My philosophy is helping you lead a balanced, healthy life.

How I thrive

To stay healthy myself, I stay involved in athletic endeavors. I jog and keep fit. I enjoy keeping an active lifestyle. I read, especially great autobiographies, to better understand the great minds of our world. I enjoy the rural nature of my community neighborhood, especially when experiencing it with my wife and wonderful children.
