      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Feng's Care Philosophy

      I strive to provide high-quality surgical care to my patients in a personal, compassionate manner. I engage my patients in discussions about their care and provide an opportunity for them to share in the decision-making process. I believe that rather than just telling my patients what to do, it is important to provide informed options so that they can choose what fits best with their personal values - to the extent that it is safe and reasonable to do so. I really enjoy just about all of the interactions I have with patients. I like explaining what is going on and helping them understand their general surgical issues. I enjoy answering questions from my patients because I believe that the more patients understand, the better able they are to care for themselves. Most of all, I enjoy working together with my patients as a partner in their surgical care. For my weight loss surgery patients, I put great effort in providing comprehensive and expert care with long-term follow-up in the surgical treatment of obesity with options including adjustable gastric banding, vertical sleeve gastrectomy, and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass using minimally invasive or laparoscopic techiniques.
