About Dr. Kwon


The more you rely on your hands, the more you should keep Robert K. Kwon, MD in mind at the first sign of trouble. Dr. Kwon, is a double board-certified hand surgeon at Southwest Hand and Microsurgery in Plano, Texas, specializing in hand trauma and reconstructive surgery.

Originally from New Jersey, Dr. Kwon graduated with honors in biology from Stanford University in California before returning home to finish his medical degree from Rutgers New Jersey Medical School in Newark. He moved to Dallas to pursue his residency training in plastic surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center before completing fellowship training in hand and microsurgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Pennsylvania.

Throughout his career, Dr. Kwon has had a particular interest in hand trauma and reconstruction. This area of focus includes replantation (reattachment), nerve repair and reconstruction, tendon and nerve transfers, and brachial plexus surgery. In addition to practicing at Southwest Hand and Microsurgery, Dr. Kwon also has privileges at several area hospitals, including Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, Medical City Plano, Baylor Scott & White Medical Center, and Texas Health Center for Diagnostics & Surgery. Dr. Kwon also sees patients of all ages, including infants, at Medical City Dallas.

When Dr. Kwon isn’t caring for his patients, he enjoys spending time with his wife and children at their West Plano home. He’s also an avid woodworker and furniture maker, though he tries to stick to hand tools.

Dr. Kwon is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery with an additional subspecialty certification in hand surgery. He is not a cosmetic surgeon; he only performs reconstructive plastic surgery. If you're in the Plano or Dallas, TX area, call or schedule an appointment online today.
