Philosophy of Care

Understanding the unique needs and wishes of each patient is fundamental to determining the most appropriate treatment plan for patient-centric care, while employing the latest research, safest procedures, and most trusted practices.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Wong's distinct perspective on managing congenital anomalies has allowed development of crossover techniques in aesthetic surgery. He applies virtual-reality computer software, endoscopic (minimally invasive) surgery, ultrasound and lasers to aesthetic body contouring and facial rejuvenation. His clinical practice includes aesthetic surgery, congenital craniofacial anomalies (including cleft lip and palate), pediatric plastic surgery, maxillofacial surgery and vascular anomalies.

Research/Academic Interests

Dr. Wong's research interests are in distraction osteogenesis, resoluble biomaterials and minimally invasive surgical techniques.
