Mission and Vision



I am dedicated to providing the highest quality of care for my patients with the ultimate goal of improving his/her health and quality of life.

As one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s premier surgeons, I practice the delivery of integrated, state-of-the-art surgical care and am driven by the following core values:

  • Caring for patients is a privilege that comes with tremendous responsibility.
  • I listen to patients because a treating physician must understand a patient’s expectations to provide effective care.
  • I always present non-operative alternatives and only recommend surgery when it’s appropriate
  • I work closely with the managers and staff of the facilities where I practice so the facilities in which I chose to practice are excellent!

Referring physicians and grateful patients have consistently cited these strengths:

  • “He takes the time to listen.”
  • “He explains information in understandable terms.”
  • “He thoughtfully discusses the potential benefits and risks” of procedures.
  • “He always discusses alternatives” to any planned treatment.
  • “He provides leading-edge care.”
