About me

Welcome to my Web page. My name is Dr. Scott Um. I practice general and bariatric surgery at Kaiser Permanente's West Los Angeles Medical Center. I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2012 and it is one of the best decisions I have made.

Biography

I was born in South Korea. My family came to the United States when I was 10 years old. In high school, I immediately realized that I wanted to become a physician when I started volunteering at a local hospital. I watched patients suffering in pain, and I wanted to do something for them. I wanted every patient to get better so that they could be home with their families and back to their normal lives.

About my practice

I practice general and bariatric surgery at the West Los Angeles Medical Center. With my additional training in minimally invasive surgery, I perform most operations using the laparoscopic technique. The most common general surgery cases I perform are appendectomy, cholecystectomy, colectomy, various hernia repairs, partial gastrectomy, and soft tissue excisions. Bariatric surgery cases I perform are Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric band removal, and complicated revisions.

How I thrive

Everyone needs to smile and show a positive attitude all the time. That is my philosophy of staying well and thriving. It is also important to treat those around you with care and respect.
