Meet Dr. Hoyman Hong, Pain Management Specialist.
Dr. Hong completed medical school at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, MI. He finished internship at University Medical Center/UCSF in Fresno, and his residency at Stanford University Medical Center in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. He completed a fellowship at the prestigious Hospital for Special Surgery in New York in interventional spine and sports medicine.
He is Board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation as well as in Pain Medicine. His medical training focused on conservative and rehabilitative treatments for various musculoskeletal and neurologic injuries and conditions. His fellowship training focused on providing interventional treatment options to patients with spinal conditions and sports injuries.
Currently serves as the Medical Director of the Phoebe Cowles Center for Comprehensive Pain Treatment in San Francisco. He is a team medical consultant for the San Francisco Giants and for the University of San Francisco, Department of Athletics. Dr Hong also served as an official tour physician with the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) during the Bank of the West Tournament held at Stanford for ten years.
Dr. Hong believes that an accurate diagnosis is the fundamental core of all medical treatment. The greatest challenge in the practice of Pain Medicine is diagnosing the individual components that cause the problem. Only after understanding the condition and the context in which a problem exists can the journey to recovery begin.
As a dedicated physician, I try to define a problem from all aspects and develop an individualized plan for the patient’s treatment. Once I lay out the options, I help the patient make the best decision and problem-solve their barriers to recovery.
Dr. Hong is available for consultations at his private offices and at the Center for Pain treatment at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital. He is also available for telehealth or video e-consultations which may be scheduled through the website portal.
