Acerca de mí
Hi! My name is Elisabeth, but you can call me Lisa.
I was born and raised in Wrightwood, California. I attended college at UC Irvine and completed a double major in biological sciences and chemistry. I then went to medical school at the University of Virginia School of Medicine - go Hoos! I completed my general surgery training at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona. Finally, I finished my training in colorectal surgery at the Cleveland Clinic in Florida. I am board-certified in both general surgery and colorectal surgery, the latter of which is my specialty.
Acerca de mi práctica médica
My partners and I all work together as a team to help you return to health. We can serve you in a variety of areas that treat colon and rectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulitis, rectal prolapse, hemorrhoids, anal fissures, hemorrhoids, anal dysplasia, anal cancer, and accidental bowel leakage.
Prior to joining Kaiser Permanente, I practiced the surgical specialty of colorectal surgery with Pasadena Colon and Rectal Surgery, Inc., and the UC San Diego Health System. I was fortunate to participate in translational research at UC San Diego, and helped further develop surgical techniques such as TAMIS and taTME for rectal cancer. My goal is to practice the specialty of colorectal surgery with an indomitable spirit for innovation and clinically-relevant advancement in the fields of colorectal surgery, endoscopy, and minimal-access surgery by delivering compassionate, high-quality, and timely surgical care.
I joined the Department of Surgery at Kaiser Permanent Los Angeles Medical Center in July of 2014, and serve as Chief of Colorectal Surgery. I value being able to spend time with members. Unfortunately, that aspect of being a physician and surgeon was proving more and more difficult in the traditional model of healthcare. It's been wonderful to transition back into a model of healthcare that supports, encourages, and values a physician-member relationship. It's an honor and privilege for me to help you maintain or improve your health.

I find balance when I collaborate with other healthcare providers with the common goal to improve the quality and outcome of surgical techniques by way of reflection and innovation. I try to maintain a state of perpetual reflection, often asking myself, "What could we have done to make it even better?"
