Dr. Maruyama's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Maruyama "Born and raised in the Central San Joaquin Valley, Michael Maruyama grew up on a small farm in Reedley, California. He left the Valley in 1967 to attend the University of Southern California on an academic scholarship, graduating in 1971. Dr. Maruyama received his MD in 1974 while at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California, completing his surgical training at LA County USC Medical Center in 1980. After 13 years, he returned home to start a solo general surgical practice. As his practice grew, Dr. Maruyama's core values of integrity, compassion and commitment laid the foundation of a new venture in 1995. Along with other surgeons, he helped create and found Valley Surgical Specialists, a multi-specialty surgical group. His philosophy of care is quite simple. "As surgeons we are often faced with difficult clinical decisions. But when I extrapolate the patient as a close member of my family, these decisions become quite clear," Dr. Maruyama says. "In the practice of surgery, if you do only which you would do for your loved ones, there is no trouble in decision making. I learned a long time ago, be a physician first, a surgeon second." Dr. Michael M Maruyama MD is board certified in general surgery by the American Board of Surgery. Over these years, he served as the Chief of Surgery at Saint Agnes Medical Center, the Chief of Surgery at Clovis Community Medical Center, and the CEO of Valley Surgical Specialists. Specialties Dr. Maruyama continues to practice as a general surgeon with a special interest in hernia surgery and gallbladder surgery. His desire continues to empower people to take care of themselves. The joy of competition still drives Dr. Maruyama's passions. Family outings, educating patients on healthy living, cheering on the USC Trojans or the San Francisco Giants and debating politics continue to top his passions.
