Board certified in orthopedic surgery, Dr. Choung focuses on foot and ankle care, as well as sports medicine.
“I actually decided that I wanted to go into orthopedics at the same time I decided I wanted to go into medicine,�? he says. “I was a biomedical engineering major in college doing some research on orthopedics, and I blew my knee out. It all came together [for me] at the same time.�?
Dr. Choung completed his medical training at the State University of New York at Stony Brook School of Medicine. He then completed a residency in orthopedic surgery at Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland) and a foot and ankle surgery fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery (New York City).
As a physician at Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic Orlando Health, he treats many amateur and professional athletes, and is a team physician for the Orlando Magic, University of Central Florida, Rollins College and Orlando Ballet.
“Athletes in general are among the best patients. They are super motivated to get back. They work hard. They follow instructions. If anything, you have to slow them down. It’s [gratifying] seeing them recover and get back on the playing field and be able to perform at a high level like they’re used to,�? he says.
Dr. Choung’s professional memberships include the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society.
