Kenneth B. Deck, MD

After teaching at USC, my wife and I elected to move to Orange County and begin our family. I have been in practice here since 1980. After growing up in a poor Cincinnati family, I have found that my values and the things that are important to me are different than some physicians. My family is of the utmost importance to me and my wife of 27 years Karen and I have been blessed with 3 great children. We have both been involved in their schools, athletic endeavors and are constantly together as a family.

As a patient you will notice that I will introduce myself to you as "Ken" for I feel very strongly that the relationship I strive to establish is one of equality and mutual respect.

My major area of interest is in caring for patients with Breast Disease and Breast Cancer. I was intimately involved in setting up the Saddleback Breast Center and am constantly giving lectures, talks to physicians and support groups regarding Breast Disease. My background is in the areas of General and Vascular Surgery since 1980.

This physician is a member of MemorialCare Physician Society which drives clinical outcomes and performance for MemorialCare Health System.
