Meet Dr. Duong


Dr. Duong was born in Saigon, Vietnam, and arrived with his family in the United States as war refugees. He grew up in Knoxville, TN, as the eldest of three children. With the help of private scholarships, he earned a B.A. in Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry and Religious Studies at Yale University. He subsequently earned both an M.D. and a Ph.D. in Molecular Physiology & Biophysics at Vanderbilt University in the NIH-funded Medical Scientist Training Program. He completed his internship in general surgery and residency training in urology at Stanford University. Over the course of his career, he has published numerous scientific articles and presented his work at national meetings.

In 2009, Dr. Duong established a well-respected private practice in the heart of San Francisco, specializing in minimally invasive urologic surgery. In the summer of 2017, he moved back to Tennessee to be closer to family and joined Urology Associates, P.C.
