With Dr. Liu’s advanced techniques, most patients take their lives back after surgery with a faster recovery time, reduced scarring, and minimal pain.
Combined with his expertise using the latest advancements in minimally-invasive, robotics-assisted surgery, he’s known as one of the best general surgeons in the country. He’s also the only Intuitive Surgical Hernia Epicenter program in California. Because of that, top hernia surgeons from prominent hospitals around the country are eager to learn from Dr. Liu.
But Dr. Liu didn’t enter the surgical field simply because he loves science and medicine.
He did so because he believes every patient deserves to be treated with the utmost respect, compassion, and support.

He personally meets with you during the initial consultation, the morning of your surgery, and for each follow-up appointment so you have the best possible experience.
