It’s hard to know where to turn when you’re faced with a daunting health condition. As Kaiser Permanente surgeons, you’re in good hands with us.
We are highly skilled and extremely motivated surgeons, with a hand-picked team of specially trained clinicians and support staff who help us plan for your surgery, treatment, and recovery.
We diagnose and treat patients, remove tumors, and repair spines. We restore movement and function, relieve pain, and help you get your life back on track.
We have been leaders in developing intraoperative work, linking neurosurgery and anesthesia. Our work has led to a three fold decrease in major postoperative complication rates,* which means safer care and a lot less worry for you.
This type of approach to surgery and care doesn’t happen everywhere, but it does happen here. We are known to be among some of the very best practicing medicine — and we’re in your backyard, ready to help you when you need us.
