Bio

Dr. George Chiang is a board-certified pediatric urologist at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego, with fellowship training and board certification as a specialist in urology and pediatric urology.

Earning his medical degree at Tufts University in Boston and completing a residency in urology at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Mass., Dr. Chiang went on to complete a fellowship in pediatric urology at Rady Children's.

Since his training, Dr. Chiang has worked extensively with Spina Bifida San Diego, helping to organize the first annual Winter Bifida in 2009, which has become an annual event bringing together the community of patients, providers, and families affected by spina bifida in the region. He was also the first pediatric surgeon on the West Coast in 2008 to perform laparoscopic, single-site "scarless" surgery for the removal of kidneys in children.

Dr. Chiang's clinical and research interests include the neurogenic bladder, minimally invasive surgery, and leveraging the electronic health record for comparative effectiveness research. He has lectured at both regional and national conferences in the field of spina bifida and pediatric urology. In training the urology residents of San Diego, he was awarded the UC San Diego Urology Faculty Educator Award in 2013. As faculty advisor to Project Nicaragua at UC San Diego, he continues to mentor undergraduates in the healthcare field.

When not working, Dr. Cheng enjoys cycling, traveling, and spending time with his wife and family.
