Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very privileged to work with wonderful colleagues and members, and look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I moved from Montreal, Canada to Los Angeles to do fellowship in joint replacement at UCLA medical school. I fell in love with the sunny weather and made Southern California my permanent home. I got married in Orange, and after two years at UCLA I moved to Orange County and joined Kaiser Permanente in 1987. I have three children, one of who is studying to be a physician, and aspiring to be an orthopedic surgeon.
A career in medicine is a very special opportunity to connect and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what patients need. I do mostly joint replacement reconstructive surgery. It is a privilege for me to help members. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I like to travel and learn about different cultures. I also make it a priority to be a good husband and a good father. I set aside time to just relax, pray, and read the Bible.
