I studied at UCLA, where I received my bachelor’s degree in neuroscience and my master’s degree in neurobiology. After UCLA, I attended Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona for medical school. I did my neurosurgery residency at Riverside University Health System. Despite the rigorous training, After residency, I completed a clinical instructorship/fellowship in complex spinal surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine, Department of Neurosurgery, where I learned reconstructive spinal surgery for degenerative spinal disorders and radio-surgical techniques for various spinal cancers. I am currently a Neurosurgeon and Complex Spine Surgeon at Kaiser Permanente-Orange County.
