My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I arrived in the United States from South Korea in the Seventies. Since then, I moved from the Midwest to the East Coast for my medical/surgical training and clinical practice. I have settled here at Southern California for several years now. My family and I truly enjoy the people, culture, and climate of Southern California.
As a vascular surgeon, I evaluate and treat circulation problems including, but not limited to, carotid artery diseases, abdominal aortic aneurysm, claudication, foot ulcers, dialysis access, and venous insufficiency. In addition to performing a variety of vascular surgical procedures, I educate and comprehensively discuss with my patients their circulation problems, advising lifestyle adjustment-such as. getting exercise, quitting smoking, and weight loss--to improve their symptoms and enhance their longevity and quality of life.
I strive to maintain good physical fitness with regular exercises--like running, walking, the treadmill, and weight lifting--and eating a well-balanced diet.
