Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Luu "I am here to assist you and your loved ones through this difficult time.  Surgeries of any kind can be seemingly terrifying, and that is where I strive to help make this a comfortable experience. I am here to answer questions, advocate on your behalf, and to make sure you get the attention and care I would extend to my own family. I am passionate about what I do.

I am a board-certified surgeon with advanced training in minimally invasive techniques that includes laparoscopy as well as robotic surgery. I am dedicated to applying my technical expertise and clinical interests to help patients with benign and malignant diseases of the upper gastrointestinal tract. I adhere to the principles of technical excellence, compassionate care, cutting edge medical knowledge, evidence-based decision making, and teamwork.
