  • About

    Physician Bio

    Dr. Ramsey Araj is a Bay Area native who as a boy developed a passion for
    fixing things and compassion for all people, which he now credits as the
    driving forces to his becoming a surgeon. Dr. Araj completed his education
    locally, earning his BS from Cal State University, Hayward and his MD
    from the University of California at Davis. Dr. Araj then completed his
    internship, residency, and chief residency in the Department of Surgery
    at Kaiser Foundation Hospital in Oakland, California.

    Dr. Araj is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and the American
    Board of Surgery. He comes to Washington Township Medical Foundation from
    his practice of 25 years Gearhart/Araj Surgeons Medical Group, here in
    Fremont. Currently, he serves as the Director of the EPIC System, ensuring
    that patient records are able to travel seamlessly with the patient throughout
    the Washington Hospital Healthcare System (WHHS).

    Dr. Araj specializes in the use of robotic surgical techniques and lends
    his expertise to WHHS as the Medical Director of the Institute for Minimally
    Invasive and Robotic procedures. He is one of the first surgeons to use
    robots in performing minimally invasive surgery for patients suffering
    from gastroesophageal reflux disease and he performed the first completely
    robotic laparoscopic colectomy in the United States in 2003 using the
    Zues® Robotic System.

    Dr. Araj lives in the East Bay with his wife and enjoys spending time with
    his five children whenever he can. In addition to his practice, Dr. Araj
    currently serves the community as an adult leader for the Boy Scouts of
    America and for the last 12 years as the trauma surgeon for the Pleasanton
    Police Department SWAT Team.
