Dr. Hongbo Liu, M.D. is one of two orthopedic spine surgeons to join and facilitate the Children’s Orthopaedic and Spine Center. With impressive qualifications and a strong resume, Dr. Liu was the supreme candidate for such a prominent and substantial position. The center is proud to have such a qualified and experienced surgeon as part of the team, for he is now responsible for the orthopedic health, and sometimes the lives, of our community’s children.
After receiving his medical degree from Harbin Medical University in Harbin, China, where he graduated with three Outstanding Student Awards, Dr. Liu completed his orthopedic surgery residency at Peking Union Medical College Hospital, one of the best medical centers in China. Dr. Liu then relocated to the United States, where he accomplished three clinical fellowships. The first two fellowships were completed at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, University of Cincinnati Hospital, and the Christ Hospital, focusing on scoliosis, pediatric orthopedics, and minimally invasive spine surgery.
Dr. Hongbo Liu’s third fellowship was completed at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, focusing on adult spine surgery. He specializes in pediatric spinal deformity, degenerative spine disorders, minimally invasive spinal surgeries, osteoporosis related vertebral compression fracture, and spinal trauma, as well as pediatric hip disorders and lower limb disorders and fractures.
The perceptive doctor prefers to use a holistic approach when treating his patients. Understanding that each child who comes into the Children’s Orthopaedic and Spine Center is an individual with different needs and ways of healing, Dr. Liu uses critical thinking and attention to detail to find the best course of treatment for each and every child.
“My ultimate goal is to use not only my clinical expertise to treat patients but also research-based evidence to guide practice and optimize care for patients.”
Dr. Hongbo Liu, M.D., fit right in at the Orthopaedic and Spine Institute (OSI) due to his ability to see people in need of healing rather than just patients to treat and send on their way. The personable doctor agrees with OSI’s mission to help people by taking the time to listen to and fully understand what they need before making medical decisions that ultimately affect their lives.
