Dr. Fong and his PA Scott Grow are wonderful. We went to several orthopedic doctors and no one took the time to listen to my daughter until we found Scott Grow. Dr Fong did knee surgery on her 11/18 and we've had nothing but excellent care and results.

I could'nt be happier with the care I have received at their office. I just recently had knee surgery with Dr Fong and have never experienced such great care before and after surgery. Thanks to the staff and doctors at the Fong Institute.

Dr. Fong says...

 I was born in Shreveport, Louisiana but raised in Hawaii. My practice is built on the foundation of ohana and southern hospitality. I received my medical degree from University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine. I have traveled the country through my surgical internship at The University Of Hawaii Integrated Surgical Residency Program and orthopedic residency at University Of Hawaii Integrated Orthopedic Residency Program doing rotations at Shriner's Hospital in Missouri, Henry Ford Hospital in Michigan, and Ranchos Los Amigos in California, working with only the best and brightest residents. During my Sports Medicine fellowship at Tulane I found my true home, Louisiana.  This is where my wife and I have raised our 3 children.

I have served the Slidell community as a board certified orthopedic surgeon since 1996. In that time, I helped found Southern Surgical Hospital, where I remain an active partner, and run a weekend clinic for injured youth athletes.
