Gerardo Bustillo, MD

Since completing specialty training in 1986, Dr. Bustillo has enjoyed a successful career in southern California as an obstetrician-gynecologist and recently joined MemorialCare Medical Group. After many rewarding years delivering babies, he decided to dedicate his practice to general gynecology, menopause care, and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. He has been performing minimally invasive procedures for over 25 years, and over the last few years has expanded his surgical expertise to include Da Vinci robotic options. Dr. Bustillo is one of the few gynecologists in California trained in the new single-site robotic platform, which allows for an entire surgical procedure, such as a hysterectomy, to be performed through one small incision in the navel.

Dr. Bustillo completed undergraduate studies at Rice University in Houston, Texas, majoring in Biology and French; he graduated magna cum laude and was awarded membership into Phi Beta Kappa. He received his Doctor of Medicine degree from Cornell University Weill Medical College in New York City, and subsequently completed internship and residency training in Obstetrics & Gynecology at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. Dr. Bustillo is board-certified by the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology.

Of Cuban heritage, Dr. Bustillo is fluent in Spanish and also French. He has been married for over thirty years and has four wonderful children, including a set of triplets. In his free time, he enjoys traveling, staying fit, and spending time with his family.

"I enjoy being a physician because of the opportunity to develop long-term, health-promoting relationships with my patients over the years. My special areas of interest include reproductive genetics, menopause, abnormal PAP smears, pediatric and adolescent gynecology, and laparoscopic surgery, including laparoscopic hysterectomy. I consider myself an advocate for women, children, and the family, and thoroughly enjoy the challenges of being the father of four children, including a set of triplets. I do not perform pregnancy terminations."
