About Me

I was born in San Francisco and raised in the South Bay. After attending college at Cornell University, I obtained my medical degree from Duke University School of Medicine. I then completed an internship and a residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. Following the completion of my training in plastic surgery, I elected to stay at Johns Hopkins for an additional year to complete further specialty training in hand and upper extremity surgery. In addition to English, I speak some modest Spanish.

A strong partnership between the patient and the surgeon is critical to achieving great outcomes in plastic surgery. The key ingredients to success include making the proper diagnosis, careful planning and a well-informed patient. This process starts long before either of us enters the operating room, and in many cases, my patients’ problems or concerns can be addressed without the need for surgery.

My surgical interests are broad, and include:

  • Treatment of injuries and chronic conditions involving the hand and wrist
  • Breast cancer reconstruction, including microvascular and implant-based techniques
  • Head-to-toe cancer reconstruction
  • Aesthetic surgery of the face, breasts and body.

My Staff

The patient and the physician are not the only members of the patient care team at Kaiser Permanente San Jose. Our excellent staff of nurses, therapists, medical assistants, schedulers and ancillary services all work together toward the goal of providing extraordinary health care.

My Colleagues

I am dedicated to working with each patient to determine the best treatment plan. Sometimes that includes involving other physicians with specialties and expertise different than my own. I am fortunate to practice at Kaiser Permanente San Jose, where I am surrounded by great colleagues who are always available to help provide the very best care to each and every patient.

Hobbies and interests

I have been fortunate to study and train at some of the finest institutions in America, but after spending 15 years on the East Coast completing my medical education and training, I was excited to return to the Bay Area with my wife and four children. When I’m not taking care of my patients, I enjoy spending time with my family outdoors. My hobbies include hiking, running, and attending sporting events (both professional and my children’s).
