I strive to follow Mother Teresa’s motto: 'Do small things with great love.'
Hurst, Texas (PRWEB) August 29, 2017
Chau Uong, D.O., has joined Physician Partners of America as a specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation in its Hurst, Texas, pain management location.
He is a member of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, the American Osteopathic Association, Association of Academic Physiatrists and Spine Intervention Society.
PPOA's Hurst practice focuses on interventional pain management, a subspecialty of pain management medicine that concentrates on minimally invasive techniques to treat and manage acute or chronic pain. Treatment may include injections, nerve blocks, and topical and oral medications. These modalities are aimed at getting to the root of the pain and allowing patients to increase their enjoyment of life and ultimately to be pain-free. This drew Dr. Uong (pronounced OO-wong) into the field.
“I enjoy being able to maximize a person’s function and help them live life to the fullest,” he says. “I strive to follow Mother Teresa’s motto: “‘do small things with great love.'”
A native of New Orleans, Dr. Uong earned his undergraduate degree in Biology and Sociology at the University of Texas – Dallas. He received his medical degree at the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine in Athens, Ohio in 2012. After completing a preliminary internship in Internal Medicine at Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati, he completed his residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital in Wheaton, Ill. in 2016. He also served as its chief resident and earned a Spirit Award for going above and beyond in patient care.
Dr. Uong completed his fellowship in Interventional Pain Management at the National Pain Institute in Winter Park, Fla. in 2017. In addition, he has delivered numerous presentations on case studies at the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and at the Association of Academic Physiatrists.
He and his wife have three young children. He enjoys everything martial arts-related, swimming and travel. In addition to English, he is somewhat fluent in Vietnamese.
