Faculty Profile

Woojin Cho, M.D., Ph.D.

Dr. Woojin Cho

Assistant Professor, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery

 

Professional Interests

Dr. Cho is a licensed medical doctor in the United States and Korea. He earned his medical  degree at Hanyang University Medical School in South Korea. He subsequently completed his orthopaedic internship and residency at Hanyang University Hospital, and became a Korean Orthopaedic Board-certified surgeon. Following his residency, he completed 3-years of spine clinical fellowship from 2004 to 2006 under Professors Jae-Lim Cho and Han Chang, both of whom had been ranked  as two of the best 10 spine surgeons in Korea over 20 years. During his training, he also earned a PhD degree at Hanyang University College of Medicine.

Dr. Cho came to the United States in 2006, and he completed a biomechanical research fellowship at Twin Cities Spine Center in Minneapolis in 2007. He subsequently spent 2.5 years as a Clinical Research Fellow at Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis which is one of the most renowned research groups nationally as well as internationally. While he stayed there, he was not only very productive in his research, he passed all the steps of United States Medical License Exam (USMLE), which permitted him to train as a clinical fellow in US. His first clinical fellow was at University Virginia Health System which is the level 1 trauma center. Subsequently he participated in the Spine Clinical Fellowship for 2 years at the Hospital for Special Surgery which has been number one orthopaedic hospital for over 10 years. After the long journey of training, he became a licensed medical doctor in New York, and he will be US orthopedic board eligible. He finished 10 years of spine fellowship including six years of clinical fellowship with the most preeminent spine surgeons. Therefore, he is able to treat all kinds of spine pathology with many different surgical options. His special interests are the degenerative conditions of cervical and thoracolumbar spine as well as the spinal deformities.

Dr. Cho joined Montefiore University Hospital as a spine attending in 2013. He is a member of the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS), the North American Spine Society (NASS), AO Spine North America, The International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery (ISASS), the Korean American Spine Society, the Korean Society of Spine Surgery, the Korean Spine Arthroplasty Society, the Pacific and Asian Society of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, the Korean Orthopaedic Association, and the Korean Medical Association.

 

 

Selected Publications

Dr. Cho has more than 60 scientific articles related spine research published or in press, and he has made about 160 presentations at various well-known international meetings. On top of peer reviewed publications, he has written numerous review articles as well as book chapters. As he completed 10 years of fellowship, he was involved in almost all subfields of spine research including Biomechanics, Anatomy, Deformity, Cervical spine, Thoracolumbar spine, and Minimally invasive surgery.
