Dr. Brian Fong, MD
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.

I get excellent care from Dr. Fong and his P.A., Scott Grow. Both show genuine interest in my problem(s) and explain my options well.
in Picayune, MS |
I have been very, very pleased with Dr. Fong and his PA, Scott Grow. They have been kind, informative, efficient, and helpful. Before I became a patient, I was impressed with Dr. Fong several years ago when he treated my elderly mother. She broke her shoulder and instead of rushing to surgery, as many doctors would, he explained the pros and cons of doing surgery, and gave us the impression that she would do fine without the surgery. She did not have the operation, and recovered well.
in Pearl River La |
Outstanding doctor patient relationship outstanding surgery on left shoulder have recommended to fellow employees and other friends and family
