About Dr. Mickey Cho:

Dr. Cho is a native of San Antonio. He graduated from Judson High School, Converse, TX in 1991, and completed his undergraduate education at the United States Military Academy, West Point, NY. Upon graduating with honors from West Point with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry in 1995, Dr. Cho attended medical school at the F. Edward Hebert School of Medicine in Bethesda, MD. Dr. Cho completed a Transitional Internship at William Beaumont Army Medical Center, El Paso, TX from 1999-2000. He then spent 1-year as a Flight Surgeon with the U.S. Army in Chunchon, Korea assigned to an Apache Helicopter Battalion in the 2nd Infantry Division from 2000-2001. After this assignment, Dr. Cho began his Orthopaedic Surgery Residency in 2001 at William Beaumont Army Medical Center. He completed residency training in 2005 and then began his additional training in hand surgery. He completed an AO Fellowship in Hand Surgery in Ludwigshafen, Germany, in 2005, and in 2006 began the combined Hand Surgery Fellowship at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Washington, D.C., and Curtis National Hand Center, Baltimore, MD.

Upon completing his hand fellowships, Dr. Cho was assigned to Landstuhl, Germany as the Chief of Hand Surgery from 2007 to 2009. There he treated severely injured service members from Afghanistan and Iraq in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Dr. Cho returned to his native San Antonio in 2009 to continue his care of Wounded Warriors at Brooke Army Medical Center. He became the Chief of the Hand, Microvascular, and Peripheral Nerve Surgery Service in 2016. He continued in this position until his retirement in April 2019. After 24 years of service to the nation, Dr. Cho is retiring from the U.S. Army and transitioning to a civilian practice. After a decade of treating upper extremity bone, soft tissue, and nerve injuries of Wounded Warriors, Dr. Cho is eager to translate his experience and unique skill set gained during his service in the military to the San Antonio community at-large.

Dr. Cho has a special interest in the treatment of compression neuropathies (carpal tunnel, cubital tunnel, radial tunnel, and ulnar tunnel syndromes), peripheral nerve injuries, shoulder arthritis, upper extremity amputee care, and upper extremity fracture care.
