Pediatric Surgery »  Our Team

Our Team

Our surgeons are internationally recognized leaders in the fields of pediatric surgical oncology, minimally invasive surgery, and birth defects. Each surgeon is board certified in pediatrics and confines their practice exclusively to children. Along with their clinical practice, our surgeons are full-time faculty members at the University of California, San Francisco and Oakland where they teach and conduct clinical research.

Our team of surgeons work in conjunction with a full spectrum of pediatric subspecialists to provide comprehensive care to infants, children, and adolescents with congenital and acquired conditions.
