As a Bay Area native, I am excited to be back home at the state-of-the-art Kaiser Permanente Oakland Medical Center.
Along with my colleagues, I am committed to maintaining Kaiser Permanente in Oakland as a center of expertise and continuing its values and success. I am looking forward to the exponential growth in thoracic surgery and I am inspired to provide the best possible surgical service and care to the patient. I believe the patient is the most important part of the process and strive hard to provide the best possible care with the best possible outcomes.
My clinical interests involve all aspects of thoracic surgery, especially minimally invasive lung and esophageal surgery, image-guided surgical techniques for small lung nodules, and multimodality treatment of mesothelioma.
I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2014.
My wife, also a Bay Area native, is an internal medicine physician at Kaiser Permanente. In my spare time, you can find me on the golf course, basketball court, or on the beaches of Hawaii.
