Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

As an Orthopedic Surgeon I enjoy caring for my patients and helping them to return to their prior levels of function. My father was a surgeon, and three of my siblings are physicians. My father was president of his local medical society and I was the 134th President of the Los Angeles County Medical Association. I look forward to patients with challenging problems and I enjoy exploring conservative methods of treatment with my patients who felt surgery was the only option.Read more
