Arthur Y. Hung M.D.

Dr. Arthur Hung joined the faculty at Oregon Health & Science University in 2002. He specializes in genitourinary oncology (treating cancers of the reproductive organs) and soft tissue sarcomas (cancers of the soft tissues of the body), but treats all types of cancer. His major research interests are in developing clinical trials and refining radiation techniques to eliminate side effects while giving patients the most benefit from radiation treatment.
