Dr. Ivan Wong is an Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, School of Health and Human Performance, and the School of Physiotherapy at Dalhousie University. He co-directs the Joint Preservation, Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy Fellowship program in Halifax, Canada.

He received his Master’s in Academic Medicine from the University of Southern California, and he completed his fellowship with Dr. Stephen Snyder at the Southern California Orthopaedic Institute. He is also a certified fellow of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons (ABOS) and the Canadian Academy of Sport and Exercise Medicine (CASEM). He is the current President of the Arthroscopy Association of Canada (AAC) and the Chair of Research at the Arthroscopy Association of North America.

Dr. Wong’s expertise lies in minimally invasive arthroscopic surgeries of the shoulder, hip, and knee. He has developed many innovative surgical techniques, including arthroscopic alternatives to some of the shoulder and hip’s most difficult problems. His current research focuses upon the use of human dermal allograft for rotator cuff construction, the use of distal tibial allograft for anatomic glenoid reconstruction in patients with recurrent shoulder instability, and the use of orthobiologics for the treatment of cartilage defects.​

Dr. Wong has published over 100 peer-reviewed papers and has presented his research outcomes and surgical techniques at approximately 110 conferences around the world during the past decade.
