Dr. Kwon's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kwon "Dr. Kwon grew up in New Jersey before attending school in California, where he graduated with honors from Stanford with a degree in Biology. After returning home to attend Rutgers Medical School, he completed his training in General and Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern in Dallas. Though he completed a fellowship in Hand and Microsurgery in Pittsburgh, he return the Dallas to practice. Dr. Kwon lives in Plano with his wife and two children. He is an avid cook and woodworker. The irony of a hand surgeon regularly using power saws is not lost on him."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kwon "Dr. Kwon is a strong believe in including patients in medical decision making.  Perhaps more than most other specialities in surgery, hand and peripheral nerve surgery often requires a large investment from the patient, the therapist, and the patient's support system for optimal results.  There are few certainties in medicine, but a well informed patient who understands their condition and the choices before them is usually most satisfied with their care.  Dr. Kwon is a strong believer in nonoperative management where appropriate, and tries very hard to avoid what is often the easier or more expensive option, and instead focus on what best serves the patient. "

Dr Kwon performed emergency surgery on my thumb after a fall on an icy sidewalk. He was very informative and has a very professional manner. I am grateful for everything he did for me in my time of need.

I had Dr. Kwon assigned to me for a back surgery to do the closure and he did an amazing job. He was very attentive to checking in on me and he made me very comfortable. My scar is hardly noticeable. His attention to detail is unparalleled.
