We are pleased to introduce our most recent addition:
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.
Epic Care’s Radiation Oncologist, Dr. Valery Uhl, was featured on CBS Bay Area Focus to for her involvement with the American Cancer Society.

We perform Intra Operative Radiation Therapy (IORT) in the OR at Summit Medical Center in Oakland with our incredible Bay Area Breast Surgeons (BABS) lead by Dr. Lisa Bailey.
What you may not know is that their paper was published just this month on our IORT results. Dr. Uhl also gave a talk in Las Vegas in February 2016 about our successful IORT program.
The results of our first 130 patients are published in this paper. We have now treated well over 200 patients.
We started our program in late October 2011 and are coming up to our 5 year mark. We are one of the leading centers in the nation offering IORT and have some of the best results. Dr. Bailey and Dr. Uhl train and proctor other physicians. They have also successfully assisted New Zealand in implementing an IORT program for the entire country.
Many women are hearing about IORT and coming to Epic Care to see our BABS Team and receiving this form of radiation.
Please join us in congratulating Drs. Bailey, Abe, Goodwin, Uhl and NP Carolyn Bernstein on this achievement. It is rare for physicians in a community practice to p
