About Dr. Korc

Paul Korc, MD, is a board-certified gastroenterologist with fellowship training in advanced endoscopic procedures. After completing his residency and fellowship at USC, he went on to spend a year at Indiana University, one of the nation's top programs for biliary and pancreatic disorders. There, he worked with the nation’s top experts in ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography) and EUS (endoscopic ultrasound), gaining extensive experience in the management of complex cases.

Dr. Korc’s expertise also includes removal of large polyps and early stage cancers of the mucosa, or inner lining, of the gastrointestinal tract, using ESD (endoscopic submucosal dissection). In this cutting-edge technique, cancerous or pre-cancerous lesions are removed en bloc (in one piece), avoiding the need for surgery. Dr. Korc brings to Hoag his expertise in these procedures, some of which are available at only a handful of medical centers in Southern California. Dr. Korc offers patients compassionate, personalized care along with the very best advances in endoscopic treatment.

A father of three young boys, Dr. Korc spends his free time enjoying the parks and beaches of Southern California with his wife and children.
