Biography

Dr Henry FU is a full-time joint replacement surgeon now serving as the deputy chief in the Division of Joint Replacement Surgery and Director of Hong Kong West Cluster Joint Replacement Centre.

Dr Fu graduated from the University of Hong Kong in 2008. He received his orthopaedic training in Queen Mary Hospital after his internship, obtaining his Masters of Medical Science degree from the University of Hong Kong in 2012 and Fellowship of Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 2015.

Dr Fu is now one of a handful of national experts in computer assisted hip and knee surgery. He received formal training in world renown hospitals including Hospital for Special Surgery (NY, USA), Rothman Institute (PA, USA) and Massachusetts General Hospital (MA, USA) specifically in robotic surgery. Upon returning from training, Dr Fu set up the robotic joint replacement service in Queen Mary Hospital by securing a donation of HK$15 million to acquire the Mako robotic arm surgical system. Having performed over 300 robotic hip and knee replacements, he is currently one of only three certified robotic surgery trainers in Hong Kong and has taught over 100 surgeons both locally and internationally to use robotic surgery. Dr Fu is now the chairman of the East Asia advisory board for robotic hip replacement and receives territory wide referrals for robotic hip and knee replacement for complex deformities.

Dr Fu is now the Director of DKCH Joint Replacement Centre where over 350 joint replacement operations are performed every year using enhanced recovery protocol where 90% of patients can be discharged 3 days from surgery. He is honorary associate consultant at Queen Mary Hospital and a trainer of the Hong Kong College of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

Dr Fu received the Young Achiever Award from Hospital Authority and Distinguished Young Fellow Award from the Hong Kong College of Orthopaedic Surgeons in recognition for his outstanding leadership of the Joint Replacement Centre, excellent surgical outcomes and commitment to utilizing cutting edge technology to improve patient care.
