Patient Care Philosophy
“I believe in personalizing and customizing medical and surgical care to each individual patient and offering them the best possible options whether it be traditional open surgery, minimally invasive surgery, or a catheter or endovascular approach. If I feel that surgery is not the best option, then I will express that as well. I treat my patients as I would like to be treated and provide a very personal level of care.”
Dr. Sun enjoys playing basketball and volleyball and plans to take up tennis again. He loves the outdoors and considers himself a novice world traveller who looks forward to visiting new places and experiencing different cultures.

Dr. Sun has been the principle investigator for randomized controlled clinical trials in cardiac surgery and has published multiple papers in high impact medical journals.
