As an orthopaedic subspecialist, Dr. Kwon focuses his practice in order to specifically manage patients with shoulder or elbow injuries.  This has allowed him to provide a tertiary level care to those patients with both routine and complex problems.   

After completing his undergraduate degree from Stanford University, Dr. Kwon obtained both his MD and PhD from Northwestern University under the NIH (National Institute of Health) sponsored medical scientist training program.  His residency in orthopaedic surgery was completed at Northwestern University Medical Center in Chicago, IL.  Subsequently, he completed his shoulder surgery fellowship with Drs. Joseph Iannotti and John Brems at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.  He then gained additional training in elbow surgery from Drs. Bernard Morrey and Shawn O’Driscoll at the Mayo Clinic as a visiting surgical fellow.

Dr. Kwon has a strong interest in clinical and basic science research and has over 20 publications including book chapters and peer reviewed articles.  He has also been awarded various honors and distinctions due his efforts and is the recipient of Orthopaedic Research and Educational Foundation’s research grant.  Currently, he is an assistant professor of orthopaedic surgery at the NYU School of Medicine and an attending surgeon at the NYU Medical Center as well as NYU-Hospital for Joint Diseases.
