About Dr. Ying Chi

A native of Seattle, Dr. Chi graduated from University of Washington School of Medicine in 2004. In her class of 180 students she was one of the two women who chose to specialize in orthopedic surgery. Upon completion of her general surgery internship at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago, she went on to train at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, where she was the only female orthopedic resident. A hand and Microsurgery fellowship took her to University of California – Irvine. Prior to relocating to Orange County she worked as Assistant Professor of Hand and Microsurgery at University of Cincinnati, and enjoyed teaching bright and talented orthopedic residents and fellows. She continues to be involved in academic medicine as a clinical faculty at University of California-Irvine.

Dr. Chi believes the relationship between and patient and surgeon is the foundation of the treatment process, and takes a ‘hands on’ approach to patient care. Her Chinese-American cultural heritage provides further understanding and insights to allow her to provide care and give back to her community. Dr. Chi is fluent in Mandarin- Chinese, She also has a team of multi-lingual and multi-disciplinary specialists to provide comprehensive care of your hands. She divides her time between Fountain Valley Office and Irvine Office, working as a hand and micro vascular surgeon.
