Yifan Yang M.D. FACS
General Surgeon



Dr. Yifan (Tony) Yang was born in the Inner Mongolia Province of China.  At age 10, he immigrated with his family to the United States.  He spent part of his childhood in San Diego and graduated from Torrey Pines High School.  


He left San Diego to attend the University of California, Irvine, where he graduated with honors from the Neurobiology Bachelors of Science program.  He then attended Harvard Medical School and earned his medical degree through the joint Harvard-Massachusetts Institute of Technology Health Sciences and Technology program.  Because he preferred sunshine to the harsh winters of the northeast, he returned to California and completed his residency in general surgery at the University of California, Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, California.  He is a board certified General Surgeon and a Faculty of American College of Surgeons.   


Dr. Yang has many clinical interests in the field of general surgery, including benign and malignant breast disease, biliary disease, hernia repair, colon cancer, and anal rectal disease. He is also very interested in minimal invasive and robotic surgery. He has performed over 500 Da Vinci robotic surgery cases of various complexities as of 2020.. 

Dr. Yang is married with three children and two dogs.  He enjoys spending his free time with his family and exploring all that San Diego has to offer.


He speaks fluent English and Chinese (Mandarin).
