Robert Li, MD

I chose my career path because I enjoy helping people in a very direct way. The immediacy of surgical intervention can save someone’s life, whether it’s is a simple appendectomy, a complex gastric bypass for obesity, or a life-altering cancer surgery. To me, surgery is a very tangible field, both in practice and results. I find it extremely challenging, both intellectually and physically, and I feel I’m making a difference when I come to work.  I am very thankful for the opportunity to treat patients in such a rewarding and satisfying field of medicine.

My specific surgical interests include bariatric surgery and advanced laparoscopic general surgery  as well as cancer surgery, specifically laparoscopic surgery for gastric cancer.

I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2004. Before that, I was in private practice in Long Island, New York and Burlingame, California.

I was born in Southern California, just outside of Los Angeles.
