University of Southern California
Dr. Hung is an expert in robotic 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. Supported by both a multi-year Clinical Research Grant by Intuitive Surgical and the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering at the NIH (K23EB026493), Dr. Hung has also become a leading innovator in the development of automated performance metrics for robotic surgery. His collaboration with data scientists has harness machine learning algorithms to better predict robotic surgical outcomes.
Dr. Hung has produced several first-author and senior-author papers on surgical assessment and training in leading journals, including the Journal of Urology and JAMA Surgery. He currently serves as the first Consulting Editor on Artificial Intelligence for the British Journal of Urology International.
