Overview

About me Thank you for visiting my home page. This site provides an opportunity to introduce myself to my patients. I was raised in Southern California and after receiving my training at various medical centers throughout America, I am happy to return to California for my professional practice. I have lived in Northern California now for four years with my wife and son. I received my undergraduate education at the University of California, Berkeley, with a degree in Neurobiology. I then went to Chicago, Illinois, for my medical education at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. Subsequently, I completed a general surgery residency at LAC/USC in Southern California. Additionally, I spent a year completing a Cardiothoracic research fellowship at USC where my research emphasis was on the role of topical hypothermia and myocardial preservation during beating heart surgery. In addition, my interest in clinical studies led to publications that have been presented at international meetings. Finally, I pursued specialized training in Cardiothoracic Surgery and the University of Michigan. I am a member of the American College of Surgeons, Surgical Graduate Society of USC, and the John Alexander Society of Thoracic Surgeons. As a surgeon within the Kaiser Permanente health plan, I am provided the opportunity to conduct my medical practice at the level of any academic center throughout America. At Kaiser Permanente in Walnut Creek, Thoracic Oncology is treated with a multi-disciplinary approach with all aspects of care delivered within one institution. In addition, we serve as one of the major teaching hospitals for the University of California, San Francisco-East Bay general surgery program. As the residency director for the general surgery residents here in Walnut Creek, I am provided the opportunity to help teach future surgeons about complex thoracic care. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. The following link may be both helpful and informative regarding your Thoracic Surgery questions.
