Arnold Chung, MD, is a cardiothoracic surgeon originally from Seven Hills, Ohio. He completed a seven-year combined bachelor of arts and doctor of medicine program at Boston University and the Boston University School of Medicine, graduating in 2002. He then underwent training in general surgery at Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington, VT.

His interest in cardiothoracic surgery was piqued during this period, and he furthered his surgical education at the University of North Carolina, a fully accredited, three-year program in cardiothoracic surgery. Following that training, Dr. Chung undertook a one-year fellowship at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for minimally invasive techniques in regards to lung cancer. Under the supervision of Drs. Robert McKenna, Clark Fuller, Ali Mahtabifard and Harmik Soukiasian, Dr. Chung developed the skills necessary to surgically treat the most challenging thoracic pathologies. He is grateful for the opportunity to bring his expertise and experience to Southern Nevada.
