Learn about Dr. Kwon

Care Philosophy

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.

Patient Comments (4)
Royse City, TX |
From my 1st visit with Dr. Kwon for a wrist injury, he made me feel comfortable, answered all my questions and took a conservative approach, which I appreciated! When we decided to try steroid injections, he was very patient about my needle phobia! I did end up having to have surgery and I couldn't have been more relieved and confident about Dr. Kwon performing it!

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.
in Frisco, TX |
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.

I love Dr Kwon and his staff. I have used him on 2 different occasions with hand issues.
