    Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Pulmonary, Allergy & Critical Care Medicine

    BioI am a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine in Stanford University School of Medicine. My practice includes a Lung Graft-versus-Host-Disease (GVHD) Clinic for patients with pulmonary complications after life-saving hematopoietic cell transplant. Our clinic is part of a Lung GVHD Consortium comprising Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, University of Michigan, and MD Anderson Cancer Center. In this context I am the site co-Principal Investigator for two national clinical trials through the Lung GVHD Consortium that are funded by the National Institutes of Health, one studying the association of respiratory viruses with Lung GVHD and a second studying the diagnostic and prognostic utility of quantitative CT scans of the chest for Lung GVHD. Separately, I see patients with pulmonary complications of infection from severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), including "Long COVID". I also see patients in the intensive care unit (ICU). My research applies advanced computational analysis to clinical metadata and quantitative imaging data, domains that draw on my graduate level education and postdoctoral training in engineering and bioinformatics. I strive to fuse detailed, communicative patient care with the advances of data science in medicine that I research and study.

  • Arthur Sung, MD, FCCP

    Arthur Sung, MD, FCCP

    Clinical Professor, Medicine - Pulmonary, Allergy & Critical Care Medicine

    BioDr. Sung is a highly esteemed, fellowship-trained interventional pulmonologist and a fellow of the American College of Chest Physicians.

    He is the senior associate chief of the Stanford Medicine Division of Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care Medicine. He founded the interventional pulmonology and bronchoscopy for Stanford Medicine in 2013. With Stanford University School of Medicine, he is a clinical associate professor of medicine – pulmonary, allergy and critical care medicine.

    In his clinical practice, Dr. Sung delivers care at Stanford Medicine sites in both Palo Alto, Emeryville and Livermore. He is a recognized expert in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the chest and lungs, including complex airway diseases.

    Patients praise the quality of his care and excellent listening skills. They highlight his ability to answer questions and to explain medical conditions and treatment options clearly and compassionately.

    To advance the field of pulmonology, Dr. Sung is conducting research in airways diseases. He is a principal investigator of a study of variables in computed tomography imaging used to support diagnostic and treatment approaches. He previously served as the site principal investigator for lung volume reduction procedure for COPD.

    Dr. Sung has co-authored articles published in the Journal of Thoracic Oncology, Clinical Lung Cancer, Journal of Thoracic Imaging, Chest, and elsewhere. Topics have included innovations in therapy for pneumonitis and robotic surgical treatment of lung tumors.

    He has written chapters for books such as Principles and Practice of Interventional Pulmonology, Examination of the Larynx through the Bronchoscope, and Airway Anatomy for the Bronchoscopist.

    Dr. Sung has made presentations to the American Thoracic Society, American College of Chest Physicians, and American Association of Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology. Topics have included lung cancer staging in the era of personalized medicine.

    Dr. Sung has earned recognition from the College of Chest Physicians. The Stanford Leadership Program has recognized his achievements. From the Stanford University Bio-X program, he received a grant to study ultrasound-guided lung biopsy procedures. The Bio-X program fosters interdisciplinary collaboration among biomedical and life science researchers, clinicians, engineers, physicists, and computational scientists.

    He is a member of the American Thoracic Society, American College of Chest Physicians, and American Association of Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology. He has volunteered his time and expertise to deliver health care services to those in need. New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagins honored Dr. Sung for providing care to victims of Hurricane Katrina.
