A Surgical Approach Our LAPD Story

    • Personal Journals

A career in medicine, and a career in law enforcement. Ask almost anyone, and they would say the two could not be more different. But here in Los Angeles, within the LAPD, both worlds come together in one person: Doctor Kenji Inaba. Doctor Inaba wears many hats-

-Keck Hospital of USC Professor of Surgery (Clinical Scholar)
-Keck Hospital of USC Director, General Surgery Program
-Keck Hospital of USC Vice Chair, Department of Surgery
-Keck Hospital of USC Chief of Trauma, Emergency Surgery, and Surgical Critical Care
-LAPD Reserve Officer.

In this episode we sit down with Kenji to get some insight into what led him towards a career in medicine, and also what drove him to simultaneously pursue an opportunity to protect and serve Angelenos. We also get an invaluable opportunity to get some perspective on the severity of this COVID-19 crisis from one of our city's top medical minds on the front lines.
