Epic Care Physicians Ranked Among the Best

We’re proud to support our local community and stay on the cutting edge of technology and education – this includes recognizing the great work of our multispecialty physicians both in and out of the operating room. See below for more:

Recently, Dr. Rockson Liu, an Epic Care General Surgeon, presented a webinar entitled Robotic Surgery Across the Complexity Spectrum of Hernia Repair. The live web broadcast and discussion was part of the global surgical educational series — Hernia Night in America— sponsored by Intuitive Surgical.

Dr. Liu specializes in minimally invasive hernia repair, foregut, adrenals, and abdominal surgeries. More, Dr. Liu is the director of the distinguished Robotic Hernia Mentoring/Case Observation site at Alta Bates Summit – the first and only training facility on the west coast for surgeons to learn advanced, robotic-assisted hernia repair techniques using the cutting edge da Vinci Xi system.

And his commitment doesn’t stop there.

In January 2019, Dr. Liu will join other prestigious surgeons as this year’s keynote speaker for the Intuitive Surgical National Convention where he will share his experience and expertise in advanced hernia repair to company representatives from all around the country.

Please join us in recognizing Dr. Liu for his unwavering commitment to medicine, education, and his patients’ success. For more about Dr. Liu, please click here.


The Bariatric Endoscopy Surgery Trends (BEST) Metabolic Surgery Conference was held earlier this year in Pune, India.  The highly-acclaimed event boasted an international faculty with some of the most accomplished and skilled pioneers in surgical medicine, including Epic Care General Surgeon and bariatric specialist Dr. Ajay Upadhyay.

Over several days, many of the worlds most experienced surgeons shared cutting-edge clinical innovations, trends, and techniques with their surgical colleagues. Sixteen live procedures were performed and broadcasted, including Dr. Upadhyay’s delivery of a live laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.

While there, Dr. Upadhyay also served as a moderator panel chairperson and was selected to present the keynote session on robotic bariatric surgery and a second video on robotic redo procedures.

According to Dr. Upadhyay, “It was a wonderful opportunity to exchange ideas with some of the foremost providers in our field.” And he added with a chuckle, “The food was really good too!”

As a General Surgeon, Dr. Upadhyay brings decades of expertise to Epic Care’s growing multi-specialty group. His additional areas of practice include Laparoscopic and Robotic Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Surgery, Bariatric Surgery and Advanced Gastrointestinal Surgery. Moreover, Dr. Upadhyay just completed his 500throbotic surgery — a significant milestone in minimally invasive surgery (MIS) practice and a true testament to his dedication to medicine, and more, his patients.

Congratulations to Dr. Upadhyay for his achievement and for his role in the BEST Metabolic Surgery Conference. For more about Dr. Upadhyay, please click here.

Epic Care’s General Surgeons Remain on the Cutting Edge of Hernia Repairs

Epic Care continually strives to be a leader in healthcare, especially when it comes to advancing techniques in patient care. We are unwavering in our commitment to improving care and outcomes for our patients.  To further these efforts, our highly skilled General Surgeons remain on the cutting edge by offering the latest in technology and techniques for hernia repair.

It is because of this commitment that we are pioneers in the use of Intuitive Surgical Robotic’s da Vinci Surgical System, the next frontier for minimally invasive robotic surgery.

With the da Vinci Surgical System, our surgeons operate through a few small incisions. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand. As a result, da Vinci enables our surgeons to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control.

Dr. Rockson Liu has also become the first and only Intuitive Surgical Robotic Mentor and Case Observation Site hernia surgeon in the Bay Area. A distinguished designation that is given to surgeons with highly technical skills and extensive clinical knowledge in their field, who have also demonstrated the ability to train and mentor others in the use of the complex da Vinci Surgical System.
