dr. houZhiyong Hou, MD, Research Fellow

Dr. Zhiyong Hou joined Geisinger from Shijiazhuang, China. He is a 1998 graduate of China’s Hebei Medical University, and he has been a trauma surgeon for over ten years. He is a multiple-recipient of the “Good Physician” award from the Third Hospital of Hebei Medical University.

Dr. Hou has published one book and nearly 30 research papers in China, and he recently has had two papers accepted into The Journal of Trauma. 

At Geisinger, Dr. Hou conducted and published peer reviewed clinical research with an emphasis on orthopaedic trauma injuries. He was involved in implementing and improving standardized treatment protocols for various traumatic injuries.

He hopes his work with Geisinger Orthopaedic Institute will help to further establish the Third Hospital of Hebei Medical University as a major contributor to orthopaedic trauma research.
