Since moving to the Bay Area in 1993 I have been working to advance multi-disciplinary care for cancer patients and provide cutting edge surgical care for all patients.  I actively participate in the Tumor Boards at each of San Jose's Hospitals.  I maintain leadership roles at several hospitals and I am the Northern California State Chair for the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.  At National Surgical Associates, we strive to bring an academic level of surgical care to the private practice setting. By participating in clinical research trials and by delivering thoughtful, personalized and innovative care we are obtaining our goal.
