    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Hung is an expert in robotic, laparoscopic and traditional open surgery for diseases of the adrenal, kidney, ureter, bladder and prostate.

    Dr. Hung received his Bachelor of Science degree with honors from Yale University, and completed his medical education at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University with honors in research. He completed his urology residency at the University of Southern California, and stayed at USC for a fellowship in advanced laparoscopy and robotics under Inderbir Gill, a world-leader in minimally invasive urological surgery.

    Dr. Hung is a recognized leader in the validation and development of innovative surgical simulation technologies. To train the next generation of urologic surgeons, he developed the first-ever procedure-specific simulation for robotic surgery. Dr. Hung has produced several first-author and senior-author papers in leading urologic journals on surgical simulation and image-guided therapies for urologic diseases. He is a regular peer-reviewer for leading urologic journals, including European Urology, Journal of Urology and the British Journal of Urology International. He has presented at several international and national meetings, and has received distinct honors, including speaking at the American Urological Association Annual Meeting Plenary Session and Town Hall meetings to present his work on robotic surgical simulation and mentoring.
