About Brian C Sung

Dr. Sung's training in bariatric surgery includes the gastric bypass, vertical sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric band and revisional bariatric surgery. He is well versed in both general and bariatric surgery applications of robotic, single incision and endoluminal surgery. Dr. Sung's introduction to the power of bariatric surgery began as a medical student. He recalls caring for a bariatric patient who preoperatively was a brittle diabetic with significant insulin requirements but postoperatively required no insulin coverage at all.
