Why Choose Us
“I hope to make a meaningful impact on my patients’ lives, like my dad – also a doctor – did before me. That’s paying it forward, and that’s humankindness.”
This is the philosophy of Dr. Shawn Fu. As a general surgeon at Dignity Health Medical Group in Stockton, he specializes in treating gastrointestinal diseases, abdominal disorders, including hernias, cholecystitis and gallstones. Often, he can perform surgical treatments using laparoscopic and robotic surgical procedures wherever and whenever possible in order to help patients heal faster.
His goal is always to utilize modern surgical innovations appropriately and carefully, all while providing uncompromising patient care. He talks to his patients, providing clear communication, and treats each one like a member of his own family. And he lives by the golden rule: “do unto others what I would want done to me.”
Dr. Fu’s background includes growing up with a father who was also a doctor and who constantly strived to make a meaningful impact people’s lives. He became a surgeon to fix what ails you. He sees a problem or a potential problem, and then he goes about forming a plan to help get you back to living your best life.
Dr. Fu is board-certified in general surgery. He received his medical degree from Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University in Rhode Island. His internship and residency was completed at San Joaquin General Hospital, and his fellowship was completed at the Arizona Center for Endoscopic Surgery at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona.
