Dónde ejerzo mi práctica médica
Acerca de mí
I was born in Xi'an, China, the land of the Terra Cotta warriors. I moved to the U.S. at the age of six when my father was invited to work at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. I spent my childhood in Mississippi until college. I attended Princeton University and majored in molecular biology. I then received my medical degree from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
I completed an internship in general surgery and a residency in urology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where I received awards for outstanding academic achievement and served as chief resident. It was during my training in Los Angeles that I met my wife, who was born and raised in Hawaii. We then moved to Seattle where I completed a prestigious fellowship in robotics and advanced laparoscopic surgery at Swedish Medical Center. My wife and I are very excited to have the chance to move to Hawaii to raise our family near friends and relatives.
Acerca de mi práctica médica
I was strongly influenced by my late father, an internist who loved his work. He supported me throughout my education and training. From him, I learned the values of hard work, persistence, and determination. I was motivated to work in a field that allows me to apply my own talents and knowledge to help others. Urologists treat a wide variety of medical diseases including cancer and conditions that can affect one’s quality of life. It’s a field that has made tremendous technological advances in diagnostic tools and treatments.
I’ve published extensively in several top journals in urology and oncology, and my research has been recognized at national and international conferences. Some of my research involve using multiparametric MRIs to improve prostate cancer diagnosis, robotic surgery for kidney and prostate cancers, as well as innovations in surgical technique and equipment to improve patient outcomes.
My clinical interests include minimally-invasive surgery and robotic-assisted surgery to treat prostate and kidney cancer and kidney stones.
To keep up with the most up-to-date medical research, I read medical journals, attend professional conferences, and engage with my professional organizations—the Society of Urologic Robotic Surgery, the Endourological Society, and the American Urological Association.
Hawaii Permanente Medical Group is an organization in which I feel I can excel personally and professionally. My personal interests align with its core mission of providing high-quality care and an excellent patient experience.
My approach is to look at all aspects of a person’s health and not treat just one symptom or illness. I believe in minimally invasive surgery, shared decision-making, and fostering lifelong relationships with my patients.
