OVERVIEW

Welcome. I am chief of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at the Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center, and my clinical practice is limited to gynecologic oncology. I am also a clinical professor at the UCLA and USC Schools of Medicine. My work there involves teaching medical students, residents, and fellows as well as doing clinical research. BiographyI became a physician with a specific goal in mind, and that was to help treat patients with cancer and be involved in research and education toward finding a cure. I have been on the faculty at the City of Hope, USC, UCLA, and UC Irvine, and I also spent a period of time in private practice. In my current position at Kaiser Permanente, I have found the ideal setting to further my interests and patient care goals. About my practiceI am a proponent of minimally invasive (laparoscopic) cancer surgery, and I have been a faculty member at local and national courses teaching advanced laparoscopic techniques to other physicians. I also have special expertise in advanced techniques required to achieve complete cytoreduction in ovarian cancer; to perform minimal- blood-loss, radical pelvic primary and reoperative surgery; and to perform advanced pelvic reconstruction. My practice philosophy is grounded in risk/benefit trade-offs and informed patient choice, with quality of life issues being major considerations. Whenever possible, I like to include complementary therapies that help my patients. How I thriveBalance is key. To that end, I love to travel and spend time learning in general. I spend time online taking classes, planning trips, and downloading a broad range of educational materials. Of course, that is a bit sedentary, so I fill out my days playing tennis and cycling. When I get tired of that, I climb onto my Harley and feel the wind.
