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.”

Personal Interests

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.

Clinical Interests

All aspects of adult cardiac surgery (including but not limited to coronary bypass, valvular, aortic, and atrial fibrillation surgery), minimally invasive and catheter-based or endovascular cardiovascular surgery.

Research Interests

Clinical trials and observational studies in cardiac surgery especially pertaining to new catheter-based or endovascular procedures as well as antithrombotic therapies.

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.  He has won both the Paul Cartier Cardiac Surgery Research Award from the Canadian Society of Cardiac Surgeons as well as the Young Investigator Award for Clinical Science from the Canadian Cardiovascular Society.

Dr. Sun is a cardiac surgeon and assistant professor in the division of Cardiothoracic Surgery at UW. He performs the entire spectrum of adult cardiac surgery, but has an enhanced skillset in catheter-based or endovascular cardiac surgery as well as minimally invasive cardiac surgery that he gained during specialized fellowship training at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a Harvard Medical School affiliated hospital in Boston. He is thus a unique cardiac surgeon who possesses skills in both open surgery and catheter-based procedures.

Dr. Sun received his medical degree from the University of Toronto and a Master of Science degree in Health Research Methodology from McMaster University. He completed his cardiac surgery residency at McMaster University.
