My Background

Dr. Sung is a double board certified, fellowship trained bariatric surgeon and weight loss specialist who is committed to a patient-centered and patient-focused philosophy of care.  His comprehensive practice includes both surgical and non-surgical weight loss in addition to general surgery.  Dr. Sung has served the greater Pacific Northwest community and beyond for nearly a decade now and has performed over 3000 life changing operations.  He is recognized for his exceptional surgical outcomes complemented by his compassionate, humble bedside manner  .  As such he has been recognized by his medical colleagues and nominated as a Seattle Met Top Doc and WA State Top Doc on multiple occasions.  Dr. Sung is one of only a select number of bariatric surgeons who are board certified by both the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Obesity Medicine.  Dr. Sung chose bariatric surgery as his vocation for a multitude of reasons but most importantly he cherishes the life long relationships with his patients that flourish being their partner on their journey to better health through weight loss. 
Dr. Sung is blessed with a wonderful wife and two children with whom he loves to share all that the majestic Pacific Northwest has to offer including fishing, hiking, snowboarding and surfing.  And as a former semi-professional violinist who performed with the likes of Yo Yo Ma and Isaac Stern, he loves to make and listen to music in and out of the operating room.
