Dr. Kevin Koo
Doctor Kevin Koo is an orthopaedic surgeon new to the staff of Markham Stouffville Hospital. However, that doesn’t mean he is a stranger to it. Koo grew up in Markham and has deep connections to the community.
“I grew up here. My friends and family are here. I went to high school here. I knew I was always going to come back…,” said Koo.
In his short time on staff, Koo already knows what makes Markham such a great place to practice medicine: “The best part of working here is the people,” said Koo, but he also likes the way medicine is practiced here. “…we practice not only evidence-based medicine but also common sense medicine.”
Outside of the operating room, Koo says he’s very passionate about hockey, in particular the Pittsburgh Penguins; however, he’s finding it harder to get to games lately.
“I have a two-year-old, which makes it pretty hectic and another coming in March so family time is very important to me.”
