About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I'm a Kaiser Permanente orthopedic hand surgeon based at the Garfield Specialty Offices.


I was born at Duke University, moved to Southern California in 1963, and then moved to North County San Diego in 1972. I’m married and have three children. I like to sail and surf, but I spend most of my free time with the kids, making home improvements, or walking on the beach with my spouse.

About my practice

I’ve been with Kaiser Permanente since 1990. I am board-certified in orthopedics and hand surgery, and I’m a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgery and the American Society for Surgery of the Hand.

How I thrive

Work makes the body strong and keeps the mind clear.
