About Me

Hi, everyone! I’m Dr. Arvand Elihu. I’m a general surgeon practicing at Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills Medical Center.


I was raised in sunny Southern California and consider myself to be a Los Angeles native. Being a physician allows me to make an honest living by helping people live longer and healthier lives. Working at Woodland Hills Medical Center gives me the opportunity to care for members and, at the same time, live close to family and friends. I obtained my medical degree from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and completed my general surgery training at Loma Linda University. I went on to a multiorgan abdominal transplant fellowship at Stanford University. I'm board-certified in general surgery. I joined the Kaiser Permanente community because I believe in their commitment to member care and physician well-being.

How I thrive

I try to maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating well, exercising frequently, and spending time with family and friends. I believe in kindness, empathy, and respect.
