“My motto is to treat every patient like they are part of my own family,” said Dr. Lue. “I don’t just treat bones. I treat the whole patient. That means treating each and every patient with compassion and respect and making them feel comfortable with the treatment I provide.”
Dr. Lue didn’t know he wanted to be a doctor until he was in college, but it’s quite possible he was destined to be an orthopedic surgeon from birth. As a baby, Dr. Lue contracted a bone infection. He recovered well from surgery, but his treatment required regular trips to his orthopedic doctor until he was 14 years old, to ensure that his growth plate was developing correctly. He had orthopedic surgery again in middle school to fix his elbow, and in college after tearing his ACL playing basketball.
His calling to become a doctor, however, was born of different experiences.
“I volunteered at various hospitals and nursing homes while in college and medical school. I also went on a mission trip to Mexico which opened my eyes to the sick and made me realize I wanted a career that would help people,” he said.
Dr. Lue is a New Jersey native. He studied science in college, earning a bachelors degree with honor distinctions from New York University (NYU). He received his medical degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and completed his orthopedic surgery residency at the University of Southern California.
“USC was my dream school, and the surgical experience was amazing,” he said. “We worked out of LA county hospital, which is one of the busiest hospitals in the country. I was able to treat patients from all different aspects of life. The training at the Level 1 trauma center was, at times, challenging and intense.”
While at USC, Dr. Lue also worked with the USC Trojans football team treating sports injuries. That experience influenced his decision to pursue an orthopedic sports medicine fellowship at the combined Baylor-Methodist Program in Houston. His mentors there were the team physicians from four professional sports teams. During his fellowship, Dr. Lue was an assistant team physician for the Houston Texans, Houston Rockets, Houston Astros and Houston Dynamo. He also worked with NASA astronauts, was an assistant team physician for Rice University football and baseball and was head team physician of Manvel High School football.
“My most exciting experience was with the Texans, especially being a big football fan,” he said. “Being on the field and in the locker room with the athletes was exciting and memorable. It was inspiring to see all the hard work, dedication and passion of these NFL football players and how much each player sacrificed. What was most fulfilling was being able to treat the athletes and working alongside their athletic trainers so that they could get back to their game and be at their best.
“Another one of my favorite experiences that year was working with Rice University and Manvel high school. Treating athletes at the college and high school levels was much more hands-on. I learned a lot working with the athletes, parents, athletic trainers and coaches. It gave me another perspective of each of their goals and concerns, which is helpful to ensure everyone works together to get the athlete back to his or her best.”
When Dr. Lue is not seeing patients or performing surgery, he is spending time with his family – wife Jennifer and 14-month-old daughter Jasmine. God and family are everything to him.
“God is most important to me. I know that all my experiences, the skills I’ve learned and my career are blessings from God. I owe everything I have to Him. He is the guide in my life and in my career as an orthopedic surgeon,” he said.
Dr. Lue enjoys playing golf and basketball. He regularly attends Asian American Baptist Church in Richardson. He also started covering Lucas Christian Academy as their team physician. Dr. Lue is multilingual. He speaks fluent Mandarin and Spanish.
